Item Details

Although this variety is most likely of Hungarian descent, this melon is generally identified with Kibbutz Ha'Ogen in Israel. Ha'Ogen is Hebrew for "the anchor."

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.

I grew these in my western WA garden, and they ripened the earliest of the 4 varieties that I tried. I harvested mine in early September. The flavor and texture were luscious, and the melons were a nice size. The vines were not heavy producers, but I'd rather have a couple of good sized melons than 8 tiny ones that don't ripen. I'll be planting these next year.
