Old Time Tennessee
 Cucumis melo L. Reticulatus Group

100 days — A very old variety. It has been dropped from most commercial catalogs, is rare and seems to be near extinction. The fruits weigh an average of twelve pounds, are twelve to sixteen inches in length, and are elliptical or football-shaped.

From our grower in Tennessee, David Pendergrass writes, "My personal favorite muskmelon. They must be picked at the peak of ripeness, when the fruit has turned a golden-yellow and they easily slip from vine. They should be dead ripe for the best taste. They do not keep very long. Sweet aroma that will carry over a long distance. Definitely not a shipping melon." This is a garden-to-table melon and does not ship well.

We are happy to have David as one of our growers and excited about keeping rare varieties like this one available to home gardeners. Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 25 seeds.
