Cershownski Cob Melon A very unique heirloom cob type of melon with origins from Southern Ukraine c. 1874. We acquired the seeds from Tanya at Heritage Harvest Seeds who states that the seeds have been passed on from the Jake Kehler Mennonite family who brought them to Canada over 100 years ago. The center of these melons are filled with a cob-like nucleus containing seeds. This section of the melon (cob) can be cut around lengthwise and both halves twisted to separate the seed cluster. The fruit average 8 inches in length and around 6" in diameter. The light green-nutmeg flesh is nicely textured and slightly sweet.
