The Seed Savers Exchange - An outstanding variety! This green-fleshed, nutmeg-type melon matures early, produces prolifically, and packs a sweet, sublime flavor. Fruits are tapered at both ends with a lacy netting throughout, measure 6" long by 5" wide, and weigh two pounds. Rind blushes yellow when ripe, while green flesh has a salmon patina and a juicy, melting texture. Introduced by Burpee in 1967, ‘Fordhook Gem’ is derived from two historic varieties, ‘Netted Gem’ and ‘Extra Early Knight.’ Amy Goldman, author and Seed Savers Exchange member, and advisor shared this variety with SSE in 2018. Organic.
