Rocky Ford Green Flesh (89 days)

1 Gram Package Size / Approx. 33 seeds per gram

Sometimes know as Eden's Gem.  This melon was selected/created from the old "Netted Gem" variety and introduced in the Victorian Era. 

Rocky Ford has a fine-grained sweet flavored green flesh.  A firm melon with a fine melting quality and choice spicy flavor. 

Heavily netted and slightly ribbed.  Fruits average 2-3 pounds and keep for a long time. 

Excellent for the home gardener and market grower.  Highly resistant to rust. 

1903 Maule's Seed Company Catalog says about Rocky Ford Melon..."Rocky Fords are famous in the fancy markets and great sellers.  The are of convenient size and their firmness and shape favor them as shippers.   As to quality, the appeal to the taste of epicures everywhere and hence are in brisk demand and find a prominent place on the counters and shelves of fashionable fruit stores and market stands.  ....a most appetizing flavor and aroma.  Flesh is both tender and firm; tender enough for the table and firm enough to stand shipment.  The rind is elastic, but not hard."

1924 Portland Seed Company Catalog says about Rocky Ford Melon...
"The fruit is oval, slightly ribbed, densely covered with coarse netting.  Flesh thick, green, very sweet and highly flavored.  The fruit is wonderfully uniform in shape and quality.  A favorite with market gardeners everywhere."
