Organic Hale's Best Jumbo Melon Seeds (85 days)

Seed Package Contains 1 gram or about 35 seeds.

Hale's Best Jumbo Melon was discovered by ID Hale near Brawley, California in 1923.  It was reportedly growing in a Japanese market gardeners field. 

This is a similar story to the Crane melon, but Mr. Crane crossed his discovery with an unknown melon to produce the famous Crane Melon. 

However you look at it, California has been very lucky to have so many wonderful Japanese immigrants bring their heirloom seeds to the golden state when they settled here. 

Hales Best Jumbo produces a thick, salmon-orange flesh that is sweet and juicy. 

The fruit is very fragrant, oval shaped, heavily netted and can weigh up to 5lbs! Now that is a real jumbo melon. 

Drought resistant.  Resist powerdy mildew. 

Recommended by the Following State Universities or Ag Extension Offices as a variety that performs well for their region .  TX
