Schoon's Hardshell Melon (88 days)


Schoon's Hard Shell was introduced around 1947 by F.H. Woodruff and Sons of Milford, Connecticut.  

However it is suspected to be a much earlier descendant of the famous Bender melon.

Was also known as New Yorker Melon or Illinois Hardshell melon.

Schoon's has a very netted, almost ropy looking shell that is hard, deeply ribbed and ivory colored when ripe. 

This hard shell is what makes this a great shipper and it is a good keeper making it a great Farmer's Market melon.

The flesh is sunset-colored, sweet, spicy and aromatic. 

Slips from vine when ready to eat.

Weighs 5-7 pounds.

Extremely vigorous grower.
