Snow Mass Melon Honeydew Seeds

(P) Pkt of 25 seeds
Item #05071-PK-P1


One of the sweetest honeydews of all

Day to Maturity: 90

No matter how hot your summers get or how long they remain, Snow Mass can take it. Specially adapted to grow in hot, long-summer climates, this mid-sized honeydew also boasts some of the sweetest flavor to be found in the family. An all-around superb performer, it belongs in your vegetable patch this season.

The fruit is about 6 to 8 inches in diameter and round to oblong. The cream-colored rind is very smooth, opening to reveal light green flesh and a small seed cavity. The flesh is juicy and mouthwatering sweet.

Snow Mass arises on very vigorous vines that set extra-large leaves among the fruit. This provides additional protection from the punishing summer sun. The yields are excellent and the fruit quality very uniform—you get good melons throughout the long growing season from Snow Mass.

Sow seeds directly in the garden after the soil is thoroughly warm or, for an even earlier harvest, start them indoors in pots. Set out 18 inches apart with 4 feet between each row, or plant in hills 4 feet apart, with 2 to 3 plants per hill. Honeydews are ready to harvest when the fruit turns pale yellow or tan.

5 * on flavor

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

I planted these in the spring of 16. They were not a prolific vine or producer. But the fruit that were produced were wonderful. They were very, very sweet. The texture was firmer that most melons. I will plant more seeds this year earlier and hope for a larger bounty. If you tried the French melon sold at Parks and thought they were so sweet, well these melons were even sweeter!

top flavor good yield

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I have gotten several melons this year. They are some of the best tasting honeydew I have ever grown. They are very sweet with plenty of rich flavor. The texture is firm yet melting just as you want from a ripe melon. The melons are fairly large with several per vine. I will definitely grow these again.
