Melon, Boule d'Or

75% of 100

(Golden Perfection) Very sweet, pale green flesh is just marvelous. Lovely yellow fruit has a unique, lacy netting, like a work of art. This was one of our top melons in our 2003 trials, truly incredible; my all-time favorite honeydew type. Sugary flesh is so flavorful and rich. This variety is a dream for market growers and will command high prices with gourmets and chefs alike! It was listed in Vilmorin’s book, The Vegetable Garden, in 1885 but it is very rare now. Let’s make this variety a market favorite again!
