The Jenny Lind Melon is the perfect summer treat. This heirloom cantaloupe variety has five foot vines that produce 1-to 3 pound fruits, and its flesh changes from green to white as it matures mid season! If you're looking for a very sweet melon during your next picnic or BBQ this will be just what's needed. Jenny Lind was known by many names: "The Swedish Nightingale," a Swedish opera singer who thrilled audiences across Europe in the late 1800's. 600mg ~ 25 seeds.

Direct seed 2 to 3 weeks after average last frost and when daytime soil temperatures are near 70°F. Or, start melon seed indoors 3-4 weeks before your anticipated planting date. Set transplants in the garden 2 to 3 weeks after danger of frost has passed. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 65-85 degrees. A few weeks before transplanting time, harden off plants by exposing them to an increasing number of hours outdoors each day. Delay transplanting until your soil has thoroughly warmed up in the spring.
