80 days. This fine melon dates back to the 1840's and was sold by many of the seed companies of the day. It was named after the famous singer, Jenny Lind, "The Swedish Nightingale". This wonderful 1-2 lb turban shaped melon is very sweet and has light green, delicious flesh. It is becoming popular again with those who try it!

Review:

Jenny Lind was the first to bloom and the first to ripen among the seven varieties that I grew in 2014. They slipped easily several days after turning yellowish. A very nice warning signal. They looked exactly like the picture above. The aroma in the kitchen was strong but very nice too. And the taste was very good. Jenny Lind was very productive too, so I might grow again, even though I have others I want to try.

Review:

I grew these melons for the first time this year and I had melons coming out of my ears! These were heavy producers. It is September and I am still picking melons (I live in Ohio). I grew Jenny Lind and a early hybrid from Burpee. These outperformed the hybrid in every way. They are delicious! I would say that half of my melons had slight cracking but nothing that was so bad that I couldn't cut it off and eat the rest of the melon. I will definitely grow these again. If you only have a small space to grow melons then these are the ones to plant because the yields are very good.

Review:

grew this last year for the first time. Awsome yields--fantastic sweet flavor and cool lime green interior!! Small enough for two people to share. The texture is creamy and lush like you are eating a sorbet. the vines were loaded with 10's of melons--they continued to produce throughout the summer. I did not have a problem with them cracking like so many other canteloupe. This is one variety i will always find space for. Jenny is a keeper!
