MELON Anne Arundel Muskmelon
MUSKMELON Anne Arundel Cucumis melo Germination 92% (Jul. 2021) Seeds ~ 25
Named after the County of Anne Arundel in the Baltimore MD area, it has been a familiar variety among a small circle of Maryland farmers for over a century, but has recently become popular among heirloom seed gardeners across the country. It is something like a cross between a cantaloupe and a honeydew, but smaller than the average supermarket versions of both. Having a golden yellow skin and a very tender, green flesh like the honeydew, this melon takes 80-85 days to mature in the spring/summer seasons, and is fairly easy to grow. It can be startedindoors or outdoors, but it prefers high heat and a spacious area to grow. Introduced in the late 1800s by two seed firms Griffith & Turner of Baltimore and George Tait & Sons of Norfolk, Virginia. Our seed comes from our friends at Southern Exposure Seed Exchange.
