The Seed Savers Exchange - Donated to SSE in 1997 by a Minnesota family who grew it for at least three generations since circa 1914. Named after the donor’s mother who used equal amounts of melons and apples in the pie. Highly productive, early maturing fruit is small, yellow, and round with white flesh. Fruit can be peeled like an apple. Harvest while still firm for best cooking qualities.
Instructions - Melons love heat. Sow seeds outdoors in 12" diameter hills after danger of frost has passed and soil has warmed. Space hills 6' apart in all directions. Seeds will germinate in 4-10 days. Can also be started indoors 2-3 weeks before last frost.
