(Cucumis melo) A fabulous Midwest heirloom introduced in 1937
by the Robert Buist Company. Heavy yields of
football-shaped 4-8 pound muskmelons. Hardshelled
with firm sweet flesh. Great old-fashioned
flavor associated with roadside stand melons. If you
can only grow one melon and do not want to be
disappointed, this is the variety to grow. 90-100 days.

Green Thumb Tip Melons love heat. Sow seeds outdoors in 12"
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.
