Plum Granny Melon

 
75 days
This highly fragrant heirloom melon has been around for hundreds of years and were said to have been favored by the Victorian Ladies of the era who carried them in their pockets and purses as perfume to help mask body odors when one was not able to bathe. Apple-sized fruit are yellow with deep orange stripes with white flesh. Although some local people find the taste pleasing we find the taste rather bland. They make for an excellent ornamental with one or two melons filling up a whole room with their perfume like fragrance. Very small sized seed.

My grandmother maintained these seed for many years. She always liked having a melon or two in the house for the wonderful fragrance they gave off.
