Description

Our selection from the Farthest North Mix that has been in the making since we crossed Galia F1 into the mix over 7 years ago. Still a genepool mix that has been selected for small, round, green-fleshed melons. Our goal is to breed a small fruited super early, super sweet galia/passport type melon sometimes referred to as tropical melons. The color and size are mostly stable so far, however the rind style and flavor profile is still variable. Some taste a lot like the galia-type and some still have a charentais-like flavor, which is also good. A modern landrace that can still be selected by all you seed savers to create many new varieties. Here’s to open source genetics!
