A mouth-watering delicacy from ancient times.
Each fruit weighs about 5 pounds with netted skin and thick, orange flesh dripping with honey sweet flavor. This heirloom is thought to be the progenitor of the modern-day cantaloupe, and it has been a popular choice for centuries.
This melon was a standard in early American gardens, and remained popular throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, but recently this melon has all but disappeared from the seed trade and is becoming quite rare.
