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

1890 Burpee Seed Catalog says about Emerald Green Gem Melon Seeds....
"First named and introduced by us in 1886. The greatest sensation of any melon known! The flesh, which is thicker than in any other melon of the same size, is of a beautiful suffused salmon color and ripens thoroughly to the extremely thin rind. The flesh is peculiarly crystalline in appearance, and the flavor is sweet and luscious beyond description. The vines are hardy and thirty in growth, very prolific... Extremely early and are uniformly of the most superb quality."
