Description
Hale's Best Jumbo Muskmelon
Cucumis melo Reticulatus Group

85 days — The fruits are early large, oval-shaped fruit with heavy netting and thick, salmon-orange flesh. They average 3˝ to five pounds each. Introduced in 1924.[1]

"The discovery of 'Hale's Best' was due to the alert observations of I. D. Hale of California.  Mr. Hale at one time lived Rocky Ford but moved to California and was a representative of the C. B. Weaver Co. of Chicago, one of the largest cantaloupe distributors operating in the Imperial Valley."[2]  Each packet contain one gram, which is about 35 seeds.
