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:

This was a great melon to plant. We easily picked 15 melons from two plants last summer. This year we will plant at least 6 plants, possibly more. Everyone liked it, even my picky mother in law. That is saying a lot. Very sweet and flavorful.

Review:

We grew Jenny Lind this year along with a half-dozen other varieties. Jenny Lind was our least favorite. The melons behave very much like a cantaloupe, turning slightly yellow-orange and slipping from the vine when ripe. While it is certainly prolific, and the melons are unique in appearance, there was very little sweetness in any that we tried regardless of when we picked them, the cavity was consistently large, and the flavor was simply inferior to all other varieties we grew. Most of these went into our compost pile.

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.
