Harvested from the gardens at Monticello.
The Anne Arundel muskmelon was grown in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, as early as 1731, and it was prominently displayed in the paintings of the famous Peale family of Philadelphia early in the 1800's. Anne Arundel appears to be a cross between a smooth skinned cantaloupe and a nutmeg-shaped muskmelon. It has a sweet, green flesh with a flavor similar to honeydew varieties, a nutmeg shape like other 18th century melons, and, when ripe, a golden yellow skin. Seed for this melon was obtained from food historian, William W. Weaver.

Plant the seed in fertile, loamy, and well drained, sunny garden soil after the last spring frost. Many gardeners plant melons in "hills" of compost or rotted manure. Seedlings should be thinned so they are a least 1 foot apart.

Approximately 14-20 seeds per pack.
