Eel River Melon (Crane)

*Ark of Taste Heirloom*
This variety was brought to our attention by Tom and Maud Powell of Wolf Gulch Farm as their favorite melon. Eel River dates back to the 1900’s and from there it has a rather muddled history….was it brought back from Japan after WWII in a pocket or introduced by Old Man Crane? Fun to speculate but what we do know is that they are similar to Crenshaw type melons, 3-5 lbs, slightly teardrop shaped, and yellow/buff colored with green speckles. Incredibly aromatic orange flesh is very creamy and deliciously sweet. Best suited to warmer microclimates of the PNW.
80-90 days. WG


Packet: 25 seeds
