90 days. A mouthwatering heirloom of antiquity with crisp, juicy flesh and candy sweet flavor. This historic variety was listed in the1884 retail catalogue of Benson, Maule Seeds, which said, “This melon was first brought prominently before the public notice at the Atlanta Exhibition in 1881. It remains in choice eating condition from ten to fifteen days after being pulled... Skin is although smoothe, looks as if covered with fish scales. ” This melon remained popular for many years, especially in the South. It was named for the mottled, light and medium green rind that appears much like tree bark. We are glad to see this great, unique-looking melon again in gardens!
