Hales Best

The Earliest and Best of the Rockyford Type. The medium sized nearly round melons are heavily netted. The deep orange flesh is very thick and of rich flavor. Pkt. 5c oz. 12c lb. 30c lb. 50c 1 lb. 95c postpaid.

This new cantaloupe is considered the earliest good shipper grown and a very large demand has developed for it. Many thousand acres were planted for market in 1926 and the supply of seed was exhausted at 3.00 per pound. This year I have a large quantity of the seed to offer grown from the finest selection of stock seeds. The H. B. cantaloupe is large running about nine to the Jumbo flat crate well netted oblong very solid the flesh is deep salmon colored fine grained and of good quality. Extreme earliness makes it a money maker. I have cut this seed in one grade from the finest melons and offer Hales Best or H. B. Cantaloupe (10c per pkt.) (15c per oz.) (45c per 14-lb.) (1.50 per lb.) (1.35 per lb. In 10-lb. Lots) (1.25 in 100-lb. Lots) (1.15 per lb. In 500-lb. Lots and up) prepaid.
