Queen Anne's Pocket Melon (Cucumis melo dudaim)

Item #: 631114
Availability: Usually ships in 2-3 business days
This unusual annual trailing plant with highly aromatic, ornamental fruit is also known as Plum-Granny and has been grown for at least 1000 years. Although possibly named for Queen Anne of England (1702-14), this melon is native to Persia and Linnaeus attributed it to Egypt and Arabia. Legend has it that the ladies of the Queen’s court carried the fragrant melon as a perfumed sachet. While edible, this melon is valued more for its scent than its rather flavorless white flesh.

This plant grows best in hot, dry climates and well-drained, sandy soil. Direct sow 6-8 seeds, 1” deep, in hills after the last frost; thin to 3-4 plants per hill.

Approximately 12-13 seeds per pack.
