Minnesota Midget Melon

Minnesota Midget Melon


Regular price $4.45 $3.56 Sale

Minnesota Midget Melon (Cucumis melo) This heirloom was introduced in Minnesota in 1948. Measuring 4-5 inches across, this melon has sweet, gold-orange flesh and is a reputable version of the “classic muskmelon”. We have had great success with this melon on our Northern Mountain farm in Nova Scotia, as well as the original Manitoba farm. I recall my parents growing these compact vines in their prairie garden, as I would be first to capitalize on these succulent fruits when they were harvested.
