Melon, Golden Crispy 1
FREE SHIPPING in the contiguous 48 United States

A commercial variety that was discontinued in the early 1980’s, this oblong to pear-shaped melon weighs about 1/2-pound. Smooth golden skin encases incredibly sweet, uniquely aromatic flesh. We are excited to be able to re-introduce this worthwhile melon variety that was almost lost. (75 days)

Each packet contains approximately 25-50 seeds.

Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Plant melons in a warm spot that gets plenty of sun. Make sure that the area is protected from strong winds and cool temperatures. Sow in place two weeks after the last frost and space 2-4 feet apart in rows 5-10 feet apart. May also be planted in hills, two per hill, with the hills spaced 2-3 feet apart. In short-season climates, start indoors one week before the last frost date.

Fruits are ready to pick when stems turn from green to brown and begin to dry. In addition, look for the underside — where the fruit rests on the ground — to turn from a greenish white to tan or yellow. Cut from vines with at least one inch of stem attached.
