A very good melon for home grower with limited space. Sweet and crisp and they pollinate seedless varieties. Space requirements are moderately small. I wish that it was easier to find the seeds.

An 8 lb slightly oval tiger striped hybrid with bright red flesh. From Osbourne International which adds this description: "Small diploid is excellent as a pollenizer. Jenny has firm, bright red flesh with superior flavor. The tiny seeds are edible. Strong vines have good disease resistance. "
