Using USDA seed stock from 1869, US Senator, John Bidwell, saved and improved this heavenly melon for years in Chico, CA. The fruits are huge at 9 x 14 inch and weighing 15 lbs. This is the sweetest melon we have ever tasted!

Cucumis melo

30 seeds/pack   |   80-90 days   |   Heirloom

This cantaloupe has been our farm favorite for several years.  With sweet thick flesh, at 2 lbs, these melons are small enough for one or two servings.  They do well in regions with a shorter season where there is ample daytime heat but the night time temps dip down. They grew in such abundance this year that we froze 10 gallons of flesh while we were seed saving.  Perfect for smoothies!
