(Cucumis melo) (aka Plum Granny, Dudaim Melon) Has enchanted
melon fanciers for centuries: gives off an
unforgettable perfume. Victorian women carried
these tiny melons in their pockets in the days before
aerosol deodorants. Velvety skin has jagged orange
and yellow stripes; thin white flesh is edible but
bland. Early and prolific. 80-90 days.

directions. Seeds will germinate in 4-10 days. Can
also be started indoors 2-3 weeks before last frost. ± 2,200 seeds/oz
