Description
Hearts of Gold
(Hoodoo)

Cucumis melo L. Reticulatus Group

90 days — 'Hearts of Gold', also known as 'Hoodoo', is a very old commercial variety that is well adapted for most parts and is a good choice for home gardeners. The fruits are nearly round and weigh two to three pounds with deep-orange, sweet, fragrant flesh. The rinds are heavily netted, medium ribbed, on vines that are vigorous, productive, and rust resistant.

It was released in about 1895 by Roland Morrill of Benton Harbor, Michigan[1] who claimed it was the result of stabilizing an accidental cross between 'Osage' and 'Netted Gem'.[3]  It remained one of the most popular commercial melons throughout the Midwest into the 1930s. Mr. Morrill was also the originator of 'Osage'.[2]  Each packet contains one gram, which is about 37 seeds.
