Product Description

This delicious melon was a real standout in our trials! Even in a "bad melon year," when most cantaloupe had little sweetness or flavor, Hannah's Choice still delivered on both. Its netted beige rind is accented with thin, verdant green stripes. Inside, its deep orange flesh is delectably sweet, with a rich flavor and high overall quality. When planted in warm, well-drained soil in full sunlight, these melons will weigh 3.5-5 lbs at maturity. You can determine peak ripeness by following the vine back to the first tendril. Once that tendril turns brown and dries up, the melon is ready to harvest! Hannah's Choice is also a disease-resistant melon. 80 days to maturity.
