The Story of Green Nutmeg
Green Nutmeg melon is a type of muskmelon known as "nutmeg" due to the shape, netting, and aroma of the fruit. In 1863 Fearing Bur, Jr. Described Green Nutmeg as one of the 12 varieties suitable for the garden.
Melons were developed and domesticated in Africa and Asia. Europeans settling in the Americas are recorded growing honeydew and casaba melons in the 17th century.
