Edens Gem (Rocky Ford Green Flesh)
Collective Farm Woman Melon
80-85 days. This heirloom from the Ukraine was collected in 1993 by Seed Savers Exchange. Very popular on on the peninsula of Krim in the Black Sea. Melons ripen to a yellowish-gold and the white flesh has a very high sugar content, a favorite among heirloom gardeners and growers alike. Ripens early, even in Russia, and tolerates comparatively cool summers—known to do well in Canada.
