Large, juicy, delicious melon! 5½" x 5" fruits weighing 2½- 3½ lb slip from the vine when mature. It is heavy netted, slightly ribbed with a hard rind. The flesh is very thick, firm and salmon color. Small seed cavity. Very vigorous vines are well adapted to tolerating heat. Excellent shipper.

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.

HEIRLOOM

This variety has a history of being passed down within a family or community, similar to the generational sharing of certain items like jewelry or furniture.
