This is another rare melon to the U.S. But it is about to become more popular - I hope. It has a delicious flesh and is quite sweet. It will mature to 1 or 2 pounds. This is also another heirloom from France, and arrived in the U.S. prior to 1885.

80-90 days to maturity. Try growing it the old Victory Garden way, as shown by the late James Crockett, where you allow it to grow up a little fence, and use the bottom part of panty hose, or knee-highs as a pouch to hold them attached to the fence. This way (especially in the South with the melon worm) you will protect it from pests and insects that love melons as well as much as you do - or from things chasing things that love melons as much as you do. Use well composted soil to grow in as well.

Trellising acts to increase air circulation and thus reduces diseases. When the melon is very small, if you place it into the toe of a knee-high panty hose and then fasten it to (while still connected to the vine - so do it carefully) the fence or trellis you will prevent a lot of insect, melon worm (in South), and disease problems, and in my case ‘dog damage’ because he thinks they are tennis balls for me to throw, and steals them off of the vine (well sometimes including the vine). He (Mr. Darcy - don’t ask) has taught my other dog, Mizz Tizzy (named for her personality) how to do this, also, so I am going to have to learn how to grow melons inside a vault now.

MIZZ TIZZY'S WEEDS & SEEDS are chosen for what they offer, in their ability to aid your garden's soils, improve their environments, their ability to fight off disease, to deter pests, and improve their growth rated, and increase production as inter-planting will aid in pollination.

The seeds you will receive, are presented to you in booklet form with a handy clear seed packet, for you to reuse to collect seeds after the season is completed, to have for next year, or to share with friends.

Each seed package, contains total instructions on how to propagate the seeds, which are always a generous offering, the history, or folklore surrounding the plant, and any medicinal properties it is known for.

Each seed package can also become a page in the gardening book, which helps you follow how your efforts are working. The garden book is a tough 1/2 page 3-ring binder, with rubber spine and front edges, great for the out of doors.
Inside:
• are protective sleeves for your seed packages to slip into,
• are sheets of graft paper for planning,
• a plastic envelope that will hold the name tags of other plants you have purchased, name tag markers, pens, etc.
• a booklet, that I have written and illustrated, which will give you some great references of how things work in your gardens, and how to make them self-sustainable - and create "Survivable Gardens."

We hope you enjoy.
