Melon, Early Silverline

HEIRLOOM. A small delicious gourmet melon rarely found in markets.
Unique, elongated oriental melon. White, crisp flesh sweet and fragrant. Yellow skin lined with silvery furrows, so thin it can be peeled like an apple. GARDEN HINTS: For early fruiting and to overcome a short growing season, start seeds in a warm, well-lighted indoor area 3 to 4 weeks before last spring frost. Before transfer to garden, accustom plants to outdoor conditions by moving to a sheltered area outside for a week. Grow on plastic mulch to control weeds, conserve soil moisture and protect fruit by keeping it off the ground.
