Melon ‘Honey Dew Green’ - Cucumis melo
Cucumis melo

A sweet, warm weather melon with lime-green flesh. Melons are ripe when the stem turns brown and the ‘flick test’ sounds a little hollow. Fruits are 2-2.5 kg. Needs full sun & a sheltered spot. Can be slow growing in cooler climates, so start early in a greenhouse and on a hot bed and transplant out once cooler nights have passed. For good germination 20+oC is required. 40 seeds.
