Banana Melon
Cucumis melo Reticulatus Group

90 days — It is a very old variety predating 1880. Its fruit are an interesting, elongated shaped, pinched at the ends, with a yellow skin that is mostly smooth with very little netting. It resembles a giant (18 to 24 inch long) banana, hence its name. Fruits weigh about five pounds.

When looking through old seed catalogs prior to about 1900, nearly everyone listed the Banana melon. The 1885 James J. H. Gregory seed annual stated, "None of the 170 varieties of vegetables exhibited by me at the Essex Agricultural Society in the fall of 1883 created a greater interest than the Banana melon." About 30 seeds per one gram packet.
