Minnesota Midget
Cucumis melo L.Reticulatus Group

70 days — Very early maturing. The plants are compact and some folks report that this variety does well growing in tubs. The fruits are small, five to six inches in diameter, weighing thirteen ounces to one and a half pounds, with a delicious flavor. Fruit slips from vine when ripe.

Bred by the University of Minnesota and introduced by Farmer Seed & Nursery Company of Faribault, Minnesota in about 1948. About 40 seeds per one gram packet.

Although the name of this variety contains a modern company's name, the seed we are offering is in no way sourced from, "owned by" or connected with that company. The name is simply the historically accurate, common name for the variety giving credit to the seedsman that originally released it.

Fun to watch grow. Fragrant on the vine.
Started seeds indoors in April. Transplanted 30 days later outside in May. 90 days later, baseball and softball sized melons ripened. Individual sized, sweet fleshy texture. Slight netting outsides, makes another first for enjoyment. Fun to watch grow. Fragrant on the vine.
