87 days Large, 20 to 40-lb fruit with sweet, crisp, dark red flesh. The tough rind makes it a good shipping melon. A pre-1900 heirloom, popular with old-timers. It is getting hard to find as most sources have dropped it.

I grew these for my grandmother. She had told me her father grew this variety in east Texas when she was little. I have never grown a melon but sure enough, they started spreading out and producing fruit. I picked one that was not as big as it should have been but the "thump" sounded right and it was good and sweet. The one I picked for my grandma was huge but when we cut it open, it wasnt ready. If I had left it on, it would have been a whopper.
