(vine – 75-80 days??  – $4.95) O.K, so I probably wouldn’t try growing this in a container; however, I WILL be making room for her in my garden! This heirloom from the Soviet Union produces tons of red striped melons that weigh about ¼ lb! PERFECT for single servings, the flesh is white and very sweet (melons are very fragrant too!) What a beauty! (photo courtesy Baker Creek)

(85 days   – $4.95) The Tomato Guru that I always reference, Amy Goldman, is apparently also a Melon Guru! She wrote “Melons for the Passionate Gardener” (which I guess I’m gonna HAFTA buy!), and this one is a favorite! It is an Asian variety that has EDIBLE skin! The melons are 3-4”, are crispy and crunchy, and have a high sugar content (are VERY sweet!) I can hardly wait for this one!!!!

Melon ‘Vert Grimpant’

(Vine   – $4.95)This is a French Heirloom whose name means “Green Climbing”….yes, you can grow this one on a trellis as it has rather small (1-2lb) fruits! The flesh is green, crisp and juicy; a great keeper too!
