Cucumis melo

#788 Johnies Rockmelon
#708 Tiger
NO SEED. The fruit are vibrant yellow with brilliant fire-red, zigzag stripes. A few may be solid yellow. Simply beautiful! They are also the most fragrant melons we have tried, with a rich, sweet intoxicating aroma that will fill a room. The white flesh gets sweeter in dry climates. Small in size, the fruits weigh up to 1 lb. - perfect for a single serving. The vigorous plants yield heavily, even in dry conditions. This heirloom came from an Armenian market located in a mountain valley. From Liselle Wood, Otago Peninsula.
