Mountain Sweet Yellow - #553T or #553U (OP) HEIRLOOM. 95 days. Deliciously sweet yellow version of its red-fleshed cousin ‘Mountain Sweet’ that was popular in the 1840’s throughout NJ, PA and NY. Productive 8-10’ spreading vines produce an abundance of 20-35 lb oblong fruits with dark green rinds striped with light green. Beautiful deep rich yellow flesh is dotted with black seeds and has a firm texture and high sugar content. Performs well in the North. Excellent choice for fresh markets. About 4,650 sd/lb (1/8 oz = 40 seeds)
Sugar Baby - #75T (OP) 85 days. Our most popular icebox melon! Perfectly round, uniform 6-10 lb melons. Distinctly striped when immature, but dark green with yellow bellies when ripe. Red, tender flavorful flesh with small brown seeds about the size of apple seeds that go a long way when planting. Very little pruning necessary. Sugar Baby’s hard, tough rind makes it a great shipper.
Tendersweet Orange - #555U (OP) HEIRLOOM. Excellent taste and texture! You won’t be disappointed with this oblong shaped 35-40 lb melon. An allsweet type having a medium-thick light green rind with dark green narrow stripes protects deep rich orange flesh speckled with white seeds with black markings and tips. Beauty, sweetness and firm texture all in one! Great selling market variety. About 5,800 sds/lb
NOT AVAILABLE FOR 2019
(OP) 80 days. Perhaps the best of our orange or yellow varieties. Very uniform in shape and size weighing 22-28 lbs. Has a dark green rind with a mottled stripe of lighter green. Sweet yellow flesh turns more orange as it matures and the taste improves with time. Large black seeds. Tougher rind makes this a much better shipping melon. Tolerant to Wilt and Anthracnos
Yellow Crimson - #436T or #436U (OP) HEIRLOOM. 80 days. An OLD FAVORITE is BACK! This is the yellow ‘crimson type’ (round striped melon) sister of the scrumptious red fleshed “Crimson Sweet” that is always in high demand during the heat of the dog days of summer. Early melon that produces good yields of 24 lb melons with large black seeds. Delectable golden-yellow flesh is extremely sweet and juicy. Contrary to what most of us believe, yellow/white melons are more ancient than their red/pink counterparts. They are usually sweeter too! For a festive table, pair this one with Tendersweet Orange.
Yellow Petite - #558T or #558U (OP) HEIRLOOM. This “icebox” type melon is perfect for small families, small gardens and small refrigerators! This deliciously sweet aromatic oval-round 5-7 lb melon takes the show with a beautiful bright yellow flesh protected by a light green rind with narrow dark green stripes. Vines cover the fruit well to protect against sunburn. Widely adaptable. Excellent fresh market variety. About 4,700 seeds/lb (1/8 oz = 40 seeds)
