Altaiskaya  Certified Naturally Grown Seed
Cucumis melo L. Reticulus Group

75 days — The plants have relatively short vines (four to five feet) and produce a good amount of small (two to four pounds), oval-shaped fruits. The rinds are finely netted with flesh that is yellowish-orange, fragrant, and tasty.

It is a very interesting melon variety for those of us with cooler, shorter growing seasons. It also may be a good candidate for rooftop or patio gardening if planted in a large enough container. If growing in containers, keep in mind that melons are heavy feeders so the soil needs to be very fertile and you may have to feed the plants throughout the season.

'Altaiskaya' is a Russian variety that originated that was developed by the West Siberian Experimental Vegetable Station. Our source seed was sent to us by seed saver, Andrey Baranovski of Minsk (BELR BA A). About 25 to 30 seeds per one gram packet.
Fast Mellons
I often have a hard time growing melons, we get a lot of rain and fungus always seems to be a problem but these out grew the fungus they were right at 75 days. I planted just an 8 foot row but I had more melons than we could eat. Was not a bad size or tasting melon. They also held good for over a week when picked. We ate over twelve melons over almost a month.
