Cucumis melo

Sweet, early-ripening, prolific heirloom cantaloupe–a real summer treat!

In our 2014 trials, Emerald Gem was the tastiest of the early-ripening melons, and she also wins prizes for her heavy productivity--sometimes 10-12 fruits per plant--as well as her looks. Pretty fruits turn shades of emerald green as they ripen.

Seeds grown by Earthy Delights Farm in Boise, Idaho.

30 seeds.

Directions: Start indoors in pots 4-5 weeks before last frost and transplant outside after. Or direct seed after last frost. Harden for a week before transplanting, and water thoroughly after. Melons are ripe when they slip from the vine.
