Super long as melons go. An old heirloom variety with sweet flesh, it was very popular in the 1900's. It is actually a muskmelon, as are most varieties that we refer to as 'cantaloupes'.

Collective Farm Woman - Cucumis melo - 5 Seeds

R20.00

An heirloom from Ukraine. The name does not do this melon justice. Ripening to a yellowish gold with white flesh in just under 60 days under good care.
