Melon, White Lanzhou

100% of 100

A delicious melon that has made a trip around the world! This variety has been grown in Lanzhou, China since it was introduced there in the 1940s by U.S. Vice President Henry Wallace. The white skinned, honeydew type melon has thick, heavy and sweet flesh that is rich in Vitamin C. Wallace founded the Pioneer Hi-Bred Seed Company, and in the 1940s he shared the seeds of this melon with Chinese locals.
