Green Fleshed Muskmelon Types

This group is not to be confused with Honeydews, but are softer muskmelon types that ripen to green or whitish green flesh colors.  Once the most popular kinds in the 1800’s, they are making a comeback.

Evans Sweet- 85 days- We had heard raves about this one from many and finally got it planted tin 2016 on June 26, then starting September 20 until frost in November we had a nice supply of tasty melons. They are somewhat netted  averaging 3 pounds with pale green flesh that is a bit juicy. They are most certainly not firm fleshed.

Green Nutmeg - 75 days - Dates from the mid-1800’s.  Melons average 2 to 3 lbs and always seem to grow and taste better in cooler conditions.  Tasted great when I lived in northern Idaho, just average tasting here in the Midwest.  Pkt. $1.75  Certified Organic Seed

 

Ha-Ogen- 85 days - Beautiful and super tasty.  Fruits are yellowish with green ribbing and minimal netting, 2 to 3 pounds.  Flesh tastes almost spicy.  Pkt. $2.50  Certified Organic Seed
