  • 5 dessert Melon

    Trying Melon for first time. This sounds a lovely variety.

    ”A new discovery for us, this traditional melon we recently got from Bulgaria was a real success in our 2013 trials. The plants were really happy and gew well in our polytunnel.

    It is very early and sweet, and makes lots of larger slightly oval fruit, green with pale yellow stripes. They are indeed big enough to get 5 portions out of each one!

    They are at their best when they have turned yellow, but still have a distinct green stripe between ribs. We got so many seed we are offering them at a very reduced price
    Larger early melon for short seasons, with a good flavour. Particularly good chilled in the fridge before serving.”

    Sounds very promising. Hope it does very well for you.

    In that corner of your gym/polytunnel, alongside the cucumber perhaps?

      Good luck. I have a few plants of Collective Farm Woman, but they are still tiny seedlings. Looking forward to compare notes.

        collective farm woman is an impressive name
