An extraordinary melon which can be kept in splendid condition for months after being pulled. Suitable for the South only. Pkt. 5c oz. 20c lb. 50c lb. 1.50.
The only melon that can be kept until Christmas. The color of the flesh is a deep lemon yellow and the outer skin is a dark green marked with yellow. The quality is delicious having a rich spicy flavor similar to Pineapple that is not possessed by any other melon. In the North these melons rarely ripen on the vines so they must be picked off in the Fall before frost and stored in some cool dry and dark place where even half grown ones will ripen gradually. In storing the melons take care that the fruits do not touch each other. When the rind become slightly softened and moist they are ready to eat. Plant and cultivate like other muskmelons pick the fruits when the light streaks have become quite yellow. Pkt. 5C oz. 15C 2 oz. 25C lb. 45c.
