Originally from an Armenian market. Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company brought this stunning variety to our attention. Vibrant yellow fruits with dark orange zigzag stripes. The fragrance is heavenly and the fruit similar to Queen Anne’s Pocket Melon. However, Tigger is heavier (about 1 pound), and the white flesh is mildly sweet. Ornamental, for specialty markets. 85 days. ±1,200 seeds/oz.
