Emerald Gem Melon

Emerald Gem melon

Origin - USA

Days to ripen - 90

Rind - Round,   Flesh - Orange, very sweet and luscious.  Fruit weight -  around 700g to 1kg.

Ripeness indicator - Slips, stays mostly green but ripens with a slight yellowish tinge or patch. Do not wait to go yellow all over or it will be over ripe.

 

 My Notes:  Good grower, early and productive. This variety does well in the heat and will take some dryness. A good melon for the first time grower.
