These are beautiful melons with luscious deep-orange golden flesh that is sweet, juicy and fragrant. Rinds are thin, heavily netted and medium ribbed. Vigorous, prolific plants bear nearly round, medium-sized, 2-3 lb. fruits that are ready to pick 90 days from sowing. An heirloom introduced around 1900 and once the most popular commercial cantaloupe in the Midwest.
