This sweet, luscious honeydew, with sugars ranging from 13-16%, has good shipping ability. This honeydew is adapted to the humidity of the Eastern states and does not tend to crack other than faint “sugar cracks” that indicate ripeness. Melons are 6 1/2″ round with a small cavity and light green flesh.
Merlin is an outstanding Ananas type melon from Hollar Seeds. The uniform fruit has a strong attachment to the vine, with firm, thick,creamy white flesh that has a smooth texture and high sugar content. The vine is vigorous and highly productive, with added resistance which will make it widely adapted to various conditions.
A nice choice for both shipping and roadside use. Vines are strong and lend adaptability and added protection from sunburn. Fruit is both firm for shipping and tasty and sweet for roadside sales. Sizing is consistent, making for an easy harvest.
