About- A bright and sweet diploid hybrid that packs a punch of flavor. Its light green rind is striped with dark green and reveals beautiful yellow flesh when cut into. Perfect for a summer snack, it weighs 6-10 pounds and is the ideal size for an icebox.
When and Where to Plant- Start seed indoors 2-3 weeks before the last frost or direct seed after danger of frost is past. Prefers full sun and well-draining soil. Soil temperature should be above 70°F.
Care and Harvest- Watch for fungal issues and utilize fungicide when necessary. Water frequently, consistent moisture will increase fruit set and size. Harvest by cleanly cutting the stem, when the tendril nearest to the fruit completely dries.
