This is one of the melons that just about drove Joe crazy trying to secure. For more than 8 years he tried to get seeds of this extremely interesting variety. The red/copper stripes interspersed with light green and then a dark green rib make this an extremely unusual beautiful melon. We are told that it is extra-early, bearing in as little as 70 days. We have been told that the flesh is pale green/peach color and very sweet. Joe believes that this melon originated in the Punjab. The paintings for this melon were done by Amy Glasser a young Botanical Artist who has a great eye for detail. Thanks Amy!

What are the pros? Early to ripen
What are the cons? Size
I grew this in 2014. Due to a late spring I started all of my melons late. Even though I started the melons approximately a month late these were able to ripen but they were not the first melons to ripen. They slip from the vine when ready and turn a very dark orange with green and white stripes. Mine were small, one third the size of Hale's Best Cantaloupe. Due to their small size they are very easy to miss amongst the leaves but when they are ripe their color pops and then they are very easy to see. They have a spicy honeydew smell when ripe. They taste like a mildly spicy honeydew and are very juicy.
