Altaiskaya melon

Origin - Russia. developed by the West Siberian Experimental Vegetable Station

Days to harvest - 75

Rind - Small, oval shaped. The rinds are finely netted.    Flesh - Yellowish-orange, fragrant, and tasty.  Fruit weight -  1-2 kg.

The plants have relatively short vines (four to five feet) and produce a good amount of small oval-shaped fruits.  It is a very interesting melon variety for those of us with cooler, shorter growing seasons.  It also may be a good candidate for rooftop or patio gardening if planted in a large enough container.  If growing in containers, keep in mind that melons are heavy feeders so the soil needs to be very fertile and you may have to feed the plants throughout the season.
