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 Winniford Family Farm in Rice, 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.
