The most popular icebox melon! A real find for gardeners with limited space. Early, 6-10 lb. melons grow well in the North (as well as the tropics) and have sweet, deep scarlet flesh that is juicy and sweet. Pretty dark-green rind has no striping. Individual-sized melons are perfect for fresh eating, frozen watermelon pops, smoothies and juices. Kids love ’em! Photo courtesy of Baker Creek Heirloom Seed.
