Pike Certified Naturally Grown Seed
 Cucumis melo L. Reticulatus Group

80 days — The plants are vigorous and productive producing fruits that are heavily netted and depending on the growing conditions, weighing between three and six pounds each. The light-orange colored flesh is fragrant, juicy and sweet. An excellent choice for both home gardens and growers producing for a local market. They are too tender to store or ship well.

This Oregon heirloom was selected by Mr. Aaron Pike of Monmouth, Oregon (Pike & Young Seed Company) in the 1930s. A stabilized cross between 'Spear' and 'Hearts of Gold', he bred 'Pike' melon for its ability to thrive in heavy, dry soil. When dry farmed under those conditions, the melons average about three pounds each. However, when grown in rich, irrigated soils, their size doubles.

Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 30 to 36 seeds.
Melons are juicy. A great choice for anyone. Winner!
Started the seeds the middle of April, using a 20” tray, peat cups, sitting on a warming mat. Transplanted 30 days later on the south facing side of our yard. 90 days ripening and ready to pick. Heavy netted, large and slightly oval shaped. Flavor is sweet. Melons are juicy. 3 pounds easily. A great choice for anyone. Winner!
