melon x

The early season melons get numbered as we eat them or give them away, until the trickle becomes a steady stream and we lose track.

But they all have names. This is Hearts of Gold, flavorful and a good producer, developed in 1895 and patented in 1914.

This year the garden has 15-20 varieties. A couple of the earliest producers began yielding ripe fruit around July 20. We are looking forward to a few months of melon abundance!
