A mini-sized yellow and orange striped melon, like something out of a fairytale. 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. They also love to grow vertically if you tie the vines to a trellis. You’ll know they’re ready to harvest when they easily slip off their vine or have fallen off on their own and when they smell sweet and fragrant. Rumored to be an old Armenian variety these little melons are known as “pocket melons" once grown for their fragrance.
