Melon, Hale's Best Jumbo

  • $4.00


Cucumis melo

The standard heirloom cantaloupe, yummy and reliable.

Since its introduction in 1920, Hale's Best Cantaloupe has been winning competitions, for good reason. Large, sweet, easy-to-grow melons are reliably productive and have a quintessential cantaloupe flavor. Finely netted skins and bright orange flesh.

Seeds grown by Green Team Farm in Salt Lake City, Utah, Swift River Farm in Salmon, Idaho, and Twisp River Seed in Twisp, Washington.

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.
