Golden Beauty Casaba
This is the finest of the casabas and a money maker for market growers wherever casabas mature well. The photo above shows the type of this variety which runs very true. The flesh is sweet juicy very fine grained and deep. The seeds are held very firmly in the center and the melons keep well for two or three months after maturity. On the markets they are gaining in favor and there is now a demand for very large shipments. This is the sort most extensively grown in California. Try them in your home garden if you do not grow for market. An ounce of seed may produce you many dollars worth of fine melons. Price-(10c per pkt.) (15c per oz.) (45c per lb.) (1.50 per lb.) (1.35 per lb. In 10-lb. Lots) (1.25 per lb. In 100-lb. Lots). Prepaid.
Burrells Special Extra Early Osage Musk Melon
This is another fine melon for nearby market. Weight about 6 pounds very uniform and of excellent quality. The deep flesh is orange salmon colored fine grained firm spicy and sweet. Every market gardener who is near his market and every Highway Market should provide for a supply of this variety along with Tip Top. Plant six feet apart each way and thin to two plants. You will find this a well bred sort which under fair conditions will be a money maker. Do not plant to ship long distances but be sure to plant in your home garden. Price-(5c per pkt.) (10c per oz.) (30c per lb.) (1.00 per lb.) (85c per lb. In 10-lb. Lots) (75c per lb. In 100-lb. Lots) prepaid.
Emerald Gem Muskmelon
This extra fine variety is worthy of special mention and has but few equals for the home garden but being without netting and often cracking open when ripe it is not a good market melon. Medium size perfectly smooth skin a deep emeral green with white ribs. Very attractive in appearance. Flesh salmon-colored very deep and quality almost equal to the Rocky Ford. Do not fail to grow a few. Price-(5c per pkt.) (10c per oz.) (30c per lb.) (1.00 per lb.) prepaid.
Anne Arundel Musk Melon
This very early variety is well netted has deep green meat of very fine flavor close grained and firm making an excellent market melon. Pack in Jumbo flat crates-4 to 6 pounds. Many report excellent crops from it and those who have short seasons say it is their best sort. You will find this a money maker. In Califronia this melon has been renamed Gautier Pineapple under which name it has won an excellent local reputation. My seed is the real Anne Arundel which I have selected for many years. Price-(10c per pkt.) (15c per oz.) (45c per lb.) (1.50 per lb.) prepaid.
Early Knight Cantaloupe
This is a very fine quality green meated cantaloupe. Size about that of a Jumbo Rocky Ford. Very sweet and spicy. Shape oblong. The photo above shows the blossom end but does not give a good idea as to shape. The netting is well developed except that the suture between the slight ribs is without netting and a bright green after the melon is ripe giving it a striking appearance. The fruits are firm and picked full slip will keep several days. Will pack nicely in Jumbo flat crates. I recommend Early Knight to market growers. My stock is excellent. Price-(10c per pkt.) (15c per oz.) (45c per lb.) (1.50 per lb.) (1.35 per lb. In 10-lb. Lots) (1.25 per lb. In 50-lb. Lots) prepaid.
Burrells New Golden Honey Dew
I developed this melon from the Green Meated Honey Dew. The Golden Honey Dew has rich golden orange flesh spicy and sweet. It is a long keeper earlier and a little smaller than the Green Meated Honey Dew. I sold seed of the Golden Honey Dew to an extensive shipper who said his sales on it were better than on the Green Meated and he considered it would prove a better sort for extensive planting. The supply of seed is short. Price-(10c per pkt.) (15c per oz.) (45c per lb.) (1.50 per lb.) (1.35 per lb. In 10-lb. Lots) (1.25 per lb. In 50 lb. Lots) prepaid.
Green Meated Honey Dew
During the fall of 1915 the first Honey Dew melons were placed on the market ad the product of slightly over two acres netted thirty-six hundred dollars(3600.00) in the Chicago and New York City markets. The rind is a dull white when ripe. Part of the melons show slight checks in the rind like a tendency to net. This appears when the melon is ready to pick. Time of ripening about two weeks later than Rocky Fords. The size runs six to seven inches in diameter from top to bottom and eight inches in length. The matured melons are practically all the same shape and size. The flesh is a rich green and very sweet. The melon is a good shipper and will keep several weeks so there is practically no loss from spoilded melons in shipping. I recommend this melon to market growers. The vines are vigorous and set six to ten melons to the hill and if proper care is taken to ship only ripe melons a fine market can be established. My supply of seed is strictly right and grown from carefully selected stock seeds-THE INTRODUCERS STOCK. Price-(5c per pkt.) (15c per oz.) (45c per lb.) (1.35 per lb. (10-lb. Lots 1.25 per lb.) prepaid. Wholesale prices-(100-lb. Lots 1.10 per lb.) (500-lb. Lots 1.00 per lb.) not prepaid.
This melon very much resembles my stock of Tip-Top. The netting is a little heavier. Flesh the same rich salmon color fine grained spicy and sweet. Benders surprise is a favorite in many sections. The demand for seed of this melon from my customers grew large and I have secured the finest possible stocks from which I grew a good crop this year. Price-(10c per pkt.) (15c per oz.) (45c per lb.) (1.55 per lb.) (1.45 per lb. In 10-lb. Lots) (1.35 per lb. In 100-lb. Lots) prepaid.
A very popular variety in the East particularly in New York State and similar to Livingstons Tip-Top. It is oblong full and rounded at the ends skin light greenish when ripe only slightly netted. A very delicious large salmon-fleshed melon with fair shipping and keeping qualities. Good main-crop variety.
