This is the only open pollinated honeydew that I have grown. It takes 100 days to mature so is only suitable for those of us with long growing seasosn. It is a football shaped melon with slight irregular ribbing That turns Canary yellow when ripe. White flesh with a slight green tint of good quality. It grows well in Georgia, but irrigation is required during dry spells. Of course, it does not produce as well as the hybrids.
