DESCRIPTION

We have named this melon Desert King because we consider it the most drought tolerant variety we have found for dry land, desert like conditions. Round to slightly oblong, light pea green color, medium thin, tough rind, deep rich yellow, sweet and tender flesh with grayish black seeds. It has the ability to lie on the vine a month or so after ripening and still hold its good qualities and remain free from sunburn. A small percentage of red flesh melons may be found. Positively will not sunburn!

CLASSIFICATIONS
OPEN POLLINATED

Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
