Sweet Little Gem!
Just ate the first Honey Rock muskmelon from our 2012 garden and what a little gem they are! I couldn't wait for the 5 inch diameter muskmelon to be chilled so I cut it open to find a fully ripe, apricot-colored flesh with a small seed cavity and the hard green rind that was only 1/8 of an inch thick. This is one of the best melons I have every tasted! What is lacks in size it makes up for in taste! Honey Rock melons will be a permanent staple in my garden.
