Cantaloupe – Burrell’s Jumbo (Hale’s Best)


82 Days | The original stock of Hale’s Best produced some very fine melons that were exceptionally well adapted to roadside market selling and for bulk hauling in trucks. They were so extremely large, however, that they were hardly as well suited to packing in crates as some of the smaller types. By critical selection we produced a uniform type of this having a distinct stripe or suture running from stem to blossom end. It is a big melon; the average weight from our seed fields being about 4 1/2 lb. each, which would mean that the melons pack nine or less to the Jumbo flat crate. Well netted between the distinct suture, practically no ribs. Flesh is thick, deep salmon, flavor sweet and of fine eating quality. 6 x 7 1/2 inches. | Heirloom CantaloupePacket contains about 5 grams of seed.All orders include a handling fee, however orders with only “free shipping” items will have no further charges. Plus shipping items will include postage depending on size of the order.
