Botanical Interests® Organic Cantaloupe/Muskmelon Minnesota Midget



This delightful little melon introduced in 1948 by the University of Minnesota produces loads of 4″ fruit, sweet and juicy to the rind. Melons in general, love long, hot seasons, but this variety is specially suited to areas with a short growing season, though it can be grown anywhere. Compact, 36″ plants are great for containers. Plants are Fusarium wilt resistant.
