Golden Gopher melon

Origin - USA. From the Univ. of Minnesota in the 1930s.

Days till harvest - 85

Rind - Heavily ribbed, netted.  Flesh - Deep orange. Great flavour.    Fruit weight - 7 cm fruits

 Resistant to Fusarium Wilt. Upon ripeness, the fruit of this melon slips from the vine when pulled. (If they are not ripe, they will not slip.) The tendency of this variety is to pop open when over-ripe. One of the sweetest melons ever, so it is well worth attentiveness to the harvest."
