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

Hybrid 75 days. Not a cantaloupe, honeydew or muskmelon·there is simply no other melon like this one. The skin is orange-yellow and lightly netted. Inside, the fruit is creamy white, enticingly marbled with pale orange. It¦s deliciously fragrant, very sweet and slightly spicy. The 7-8" melons slip from the vine when ready. Plants yield like mad. Fruits ripen fast·great for northern zones.
