Apple Melon

85 days. Adorable little tear-drop shaped melons just fit your hand. The cheerful golden-yellow-and green striped skin is thin like many Asian types; the fruit is eaten skin and all, like an apple. Our growers, the Gingerich family of Kentucky, first found this variety in Filadelfia in the Gran Chaco region of western Paraguay, in 1968. They grew it elsewhere in Paraguay and Belize for years before moving to Kentucky, where they have enjoyed it for several years. They and we are excited to pass this gem onto you!

What are the pros? Fun to grow

What are the cons? no flavor or sweetness

Review:

I received a huge amount of these seeds, thanks Baker Creek for such generous seed packets. I purchased 1 package and receives 3 time the amount of seed that it said on the packet. Love that Baker Creek does this with most seeds. Unfortunately, the melons themselves are tasteless and have no sweetness to them. They are fun to grow, and are prolific producers. I may give thm a try again this year, since i still have lots of seeds from last year, just put them in a different spot.

What are the pros? Prolific

What are the cons? Flavorless.

Review:

Almost all the seeds germinated and we looked forward to eating melons like apples. However, the fruit although small doesn't match either the drawing on the packet nor the photo above. They are elongated and striped. The skin, although thin, is leathery and what little flesh there is is virtually flavorless and certainly not crisp. Even our melon-loving tortoise wouldn't eat them. We're giving them to the less-discerning chickens. A real disappointment. I'll give over their space to the Mother Mary Pie Melons next year, which were delightful.

Review:

So happy I purchased these Apple Melon seeds. They have been my greatest delight this season. The melons taste like a cross between a honeydew and a cucumber. Great for a refreshing snack and they also hold their crispness in salads and salsas very well. Insects have not bothered them at all. Many fruits from each vine. Just love them!!

Review:

So glad I grew this melon. They are delicious and abundant. Easy to grow, but they would probably like to take over the garden. (I did prune new growth at one point in order to focus on the existing young melons) I have used the melon in salad, raw, and in a recipe that usually calls for cucumbers. Excellent in all ways. They seem to me to taste like a cross between a cucumber and a honeydew. The sweetness is light and the flesh stays crisp in use. My friends are all enjoying them too, because they have produced many many melons on only 4 vines. What a bargain plant!!
