Melon, Minnesota Midget

Early arriving heirloom melon with delicious meaty golden flesh.
This ever-so-sweet melon arrives early, making it a good choice for northern gardens with short seasons. Bred at the University of Minnesota in the 1940s, the small 4" melon's thick, meaty, golden yellow flesh boasts excellent flavor and a high sugar content. Perfect for smaller gardens, the compact vines grow to only 3' and produce prolifically.
