An Asian heirloom offered in our first catalogs. After an absence of many years, we're delighted to once again be able to offer our customers this unique melon also sometimes referred to as 'Vegetable Orange'. The fruits are the size, shape and color of an orange with a texture much like a mango and a somewhat bland sweet-tart taste. Not a dessert melon, the snow white flesh is best used in preserves, pies or sweet pickles. It may also be sliced and fried like eggplant. (Pick while green for pickling). Fruits will keep a long time after picking. The vigorous, spreading, very productive vines may be staked. Fruits are ready to pick when they slip freely from the stems.

    I tried these because of the amazing description. They grew well however they tasted terrible. I will never grow these again! If I could, I would give it a zero rating.
