Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Collective Farm Woman Melon
Cucumis melo Collective Farm Woman (83 days)
Seed packages contain approximately 20-25 seeds or 1 gram.
This amazing melon hales from the Ukraine where fast ripening melons are very important in cool conditions. A Seed Savers Exchange member first offered this melon in 1993 after a trip to the Island of Krim in the Black Sea.
Collective Farm Woman has a yellow-gold rind with extra sweet white flesh. Melons grow 7-10" in size. Collective Farm Woman ripens early as you would expect from a cool weather melon.
Harvest when skin turns orange-yellow. Stores well for several weeks after harvest.
