Melon, Burpees Early Hybrid Crenshaw

First Crenshaw melon early enough to grow in the North.

Burpee Exclusive

Customer Favorite!

This Burpee-bred melon is tops for performance, flavor and adaptability. The vigorous vines produce bumper crops of oval fruits up to 14 lb. each—even up North. Firm, thick, peach-pink fruit has delicious, subtle flavor; great for freezing. Dark green skin ripens to yellowish green. Melons do best when grown in clusters (hills). Sow groups of 3 or 4 seeds in groups 2' apart when soil is thoroughly warm.
