Cucumis melo var. cantalupensis
Days to Maturity: 80-90
We received the original seed stock from Grandfather Titus' farm, renowned traditional Hopi farmer. We love how drought tolerant and easy to grow these melons are in our Southwestern garden; and how they produce abundant, perfectly sized fruits for snacking in the summer heat. Fruits are dripping and sweet but not overly sweet so we can eat a whole melon and not feel overly "sugared"!
Planting Instructions: Start Hopi cantaloupe seeds indoors 3-5 weeks before last spring frost and transplant outdoors after all danger of frost has passed and soil has warmed. Or sow directly in the ground in well-draining rows with seeds spaced 12" apart. Do not overwater.
Seed Saving Instructions: Choose fully ripe, tasty fruits for seed saving. Dry seeds on a screen or cloth. Store seeds in a paper or mesh bag in a cool, dark and dry location.
