Possibly the most beautiful melon in the world with stripes of orange and green and yellow looking like a vintage beach ball. It hails from the Punjab region of India and was introduced to the US by Joseph Simcox, The Botanical Explorer.
Plant in warm soil after the danger of frost has passed and keep moist. Melons are hungry and will appreciate a nice blanket of aged compost. Make a little mound and plant 4-5 seeds on the top at a depth of 1”. When plants are a few inches high thin them down to the 1 or 2 very strongest looking ones.
