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

A 77 day round bright yellow hybrid. Fruits average 5-5 1/2" X 4 1/2-5 1/2" or about 2 lb. White flesh is sweet and flavorful with a nice, smooth texture. Small seed cavity. A half (or whole!) melon is just the right size for a snack or dessert. Harvest at forced-slip stage.
