Ha’Ogen in Israel. Ha’Ogen is Hebrew for “the
anchor.” A true cantaloupe with superbly sweet and
spicy green flesh. Round fruits weigh 3-4 pounds
with yellow-orange rind and shallow green sutures.

diameter hills after danger of frost has passed
and soil has warmed. Space hills 6' apart in all
directions. Seeds will germinate in 4-10 days. Can
also be started indoors 2-3 weeks before last frost. ± 800 seeds/oz
