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

Organic Navajo Yellow Melon Seeds
Organic Navajo Yellow Melon Seeds (90 days)
Package contains 1 gram ~30 heirloom melon seeds.
The word Navajo comes from a Pueblo Indian word for "planted fields" or "farmlands." The Navajos were farming people. They raised crops of corn, beans, squash and melons.
Navajo Yellow melon is an old Native American Heirloom from the people of the Navajo Nation.
This melon is ribbed and oval shaped.
The outer rind is smooth with a yellow skin and orange flesh inside.
Heat and drought tolerant.
Navajo Yellow is a good keeper if unbruised when stored.
Grow a real piece of American History. Perfect for demonstration gardens or teaching children about our Native ancestors.
Muskmelons grow best on well-drained, upland, silty, or (preferably) sandy loam soils with a pH level between 6.0 and 6.5. Melons planted into acidic soils (pH less than 6.0) will have yellowed foliage and produce fewer perfect flowers.
