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!

I've had seeds of this for years, having found this gem in an Indian market in Glendale, CA. I wish I had known someone was looking for this . .

What are the pros? Easy to plant, quick grower

What are the cons? powdery mildew

Review:

I was skeptical about how these would be in a northern climate. I planted these a good month and half late, and they finally died due to powdery mildew(very wet summer) but still managed to get a couple melons off. Easy to grow and prolific grower as the vines spread all over the garden. No pest problems. A sweet tasting flesh inside. Got to about the same size as a store bought honeydew. Will grow again next year for sure!

What are the pros? easy to grow & prolific

What are the cons? mildew; bland taste

Review:

i'm a container gardener; perhaps because of this, my harvest failed to be particularly tasty (as opposed to the experience of the first reviewer in MO). still, it was easy to grow this melon and it produced lots of flowers and small fruits. my vine was eventually attacked by mildew and many of the fruits died. the few that was able to harvest only turned orange after harvesting and ripening indoors in a paper bag. for me, they were not particularly sweet.

What are the pros? Early to ripen

What are the cons? Size

Review:

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.
