Positive Farmerdill On Mar 1, 2005, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

A 77 day green fleshed hybrid. Slightly smaller (3-4 lb) and about a week later than Passport. A very prolific and uniform producer. Smaller than Passport, but more uniform in size and less splitting. Flavor is not as intense as the original Galia, but a very good melon.
