95 days. Oblong fruits are brownish-green and netted outside, lime green within. In our trials the flavor was an unusual, a very delicious, sweet-tart combination, with a distinct citrus taste. The name simply means “old melon from Samarra,” which is a city in northern Iraq. Original seed was furnished by our friend, Iraqi seed collector Nael Aziz, who writes that this variety is known to have been grown in the Abbasid Period over one thousand years ago! Endangered due to war and America’s aggressive promotion of patented seeds in Iraq.
