Organic Honey Rock Melon Seed
Organic Honey Rock Melon Seed (80 days)
(Was originally known as "Sugar Rock")
Was released in 1930/31 by the Joseph Harris seed co. Was referred to as a "rock" melon because of its exterior appearance.
Honey Rock melon produces incredibly sweet fruits that are up to six inches in diameter with a tough, coarsely netted skin. The flavorful sweet salmon colored flesh of Honey Rock melon will certainly be a fantastic addition to any breakfast in bed (mmm I'm getting ideas!). Honey Rock produces vigorous vines, with an average of five to seven fruits per plant. Honey Rock melon is fusarium wilt resistant.
1932 Burpee's Seed Catalog says about Honey Rock Melon...
"Smooth, round fruits of medium size, with a heavy, coarse netting over a slate-colored ground. Tasty, honey-sweet salmon flesh. Solid, thick meat of firm texture but free from fiber. A distinct variety."
1933 Shumways Seed Catalog says about Honey Rock Melon...
"A distinctive new type, fast gaining in popularity. The fruits are almost perfectly round, non-ribbed, and covered with a very heavy netting. The meat is of super quality, very thick, firm textured, deep orange in color and with a unique honey-sweet flavor. A tough-rinded type excellent for shipping. Very productive, yielding 5 to 7 fruits to the vine. Destined to be the leading cantaloupe in all markets."
