A super smelly and glorious tasting muskmelon. The two to four pound fruits mature in about 75 to 90 days. Skins are netted and the flesh is deep orange. This variety matures quickly in a cold mountain valley. Fruits turn yellow and slip from the vine when mature. It was selected for great taste: soft, musky, and sweet.
