"This melon was selected by a large melon grower in California from the ordinary strains of Rocky Ford he was growing. It has much the same shape, appearance, netting and carrying qualities, flesh and flavor of the other salmon tinted Rocky Ford Melons.A recent report by the California Crop Reporting Service regarding cantaloupes grown in that state, gives the following figures. In 1924 there were less than 300 acres of Hale's Best, in 1925 about 5,487 acres and in 1926 there were 16,875 acres, this in face of a very small increase in the total acreage in melons in the state. The same increase was apparent at Rocky Ford, New Mexico, Arizona and all other Western states where melons are grown in large acreages.It is obvious that the sudden popularity must have a reason, which is its extreme earliness combined with its general good eating and shipping qualities."
