Perhaps the best of our orange or yellow varieties. Very uniform in shape and size weighing 22-28 lbs. Has a dark green rind with a mottled stripe of lighter green. Sweet yellow flesh turns more orange as it matures and the taste improves with time. Large black seeds. Tougher rind makes this a much better shipping melon.
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.
