Hales Best Jumbo

Cucumis melo var Reticularis


Hales Best Jumbo is an outstanding and adaptable variety with sweet, fragrant, orange flesh.

Sowing seeds in early spring and getting seedlings off to an early start under a cloche can all help to get those delicious fruits ripe before the end of summer. Heirloom. Germination guaranteed.
