Foliage bears the same markings. 15-14” high, 7-8’ spreading vines produce large oval 40 lb ultra-sweet and super juicy bright red fleshed melons with a very thick protective rind. Excellent choice for fresh markets. Check out Harvest Moon under the TRIPLOID (SEEDLESS) section. Better yet…try both!
