This is a classic European melon with sweet orange flesh and thin skin. Ripe when small pointed leaf on stem where attached to fruit becomes pale in colour.
Sow 5-6 seeds in a hill when soil has completely warmed up. Space hills a meter apart. Benefits from use of black plastic “mulch” in cooler areas to promote growth. 90 days to maturity.
NOTE: To meet quarantine requirements, this seed has been tested and found to be free of Cucumber Green Mottle Mosaic Virus. The price per packet has been increased to cover the cost of testing.
