Description

Honey Rock Melon - Grandma's Favorite

Superior, 3 - 4 lb. melons with thick, sweet, salmon-colored flesh. Vigorous, disease resistant plants set large numbers of fruits, 5 - 7 melons per plant or more. Does well in northern U.S. and southern Canada.

Also known as Sugar Rock melon. It was the 1933 All American Selections winner.

History

The melon is indigenous to sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle Eastern region to Afghanistan. Domestication may have taken place in Asia, as ancient Chinese writings show that melons were an important crop in China at least 2,000 years ago. Cultivation in the Mediterranean region started only at the end of the Roman era.

Uses

Melons are eaten fresh. 

Growing Tip

Melon seeds dislike cold soil. It's better to wait until the soil is warm to plant the seeds.  Melons do not ripen much off the vine so it is important to pick them when they are ready. Ripe melons “slip” from the vine with light pressure.
