DESCRIPTION

The definitive Frenchmelon! Considered the best melon ever developed because of its super-sweet tropical taste, smooth texture and exotic fragrance. Light gray-green slightly ribbed skin with dark green sutures when ripe. Rich salmon-orange flesh with small seed cavity. Grapefruit size 2-3 lb. melons are perfect for 2! Slip easily from stems.

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.
