Melon, Farthest North Mix (Organic)

Cucumis melo. 65 days.

A diverse genepool mix of ultra early, cool weather tolerant melons. Small, single serving, baseball-to-softball-sized melons vary in color (lots of green-fleshed but also some orange) as well as texture and flavor. This melon is like a box of chocolates (thanks Forrest Gump!). You might not know what you’re going to get, but even the ones you’re less excited about are rather tasty. The earliest short-season variety we have found. Ripens outdoors in Denmark! Developed by Tim Peters of Peters Seed and Research in Riddle, Oregon.

Sow indoors in 2-4” pots with good potting soil mid-May through mid-June. Transplant into the garden with 2’ centers one week after sprouting. May also be direct sown when soil is warm. Melons are frost-sensitive and benefit from row cover. Protect from birds while sprouting and from insects when plants are young.

Save Seed

To save seed, scoop out seeds when you eat the fruit. Rinse off and dry seeds. For seed purity, isolate from other C. melo by ½ mile.
