All-America Selections judges praised this melon as having 'superior taste and texture.' When combined with ease of growing, early maturity and strong fruit-setting ability, it had all the makings of a winner. The 6 to 8 pound icebox-size oblong fruits have sweet and juicy red flesh and a dark green rind with lighter stripes. Vigorous vines spread up to 9 feet and grow 3 feet tall, forming a semi-upright plant. 2004 AAS Winner.
