Very attractive rare honeydew melon with a brilliant gold rind and delicious thick emerald green flesh. High yields of uniquely flavored melons. Fully ripe when rind is bright yellow and feels slightly waxy or fuzzy and melon separates easily from the vine. Sunburn resistant. Excellent shipper that keeps well! Superb fresh market item.
Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
This variety has a history of being passed down within a family or community, similar to the generational sharing of certain items like jewelry or furniture.
