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.
