Cucumis melo var dudaim

This melon has been known for several hundred
years. It has an incredibly strong and very pleasant
aroma. The flavour when young is quite bland but
acceptable with the addition of lemon juice. As it
ripens more fully the flavour will develope. The flesh
is white.  They are highly sought after in the restraunt

trade for individual servings

The fruit ripen in 90 days and are very
small: full sized at slightly smaller than a tennis ball.
Quite prolific. Historically carried by Gentle Ladies
in order to enable them to ward off bad smells.
Melon seed should be sown 1.0-2.0cm deep
directly into the garden in richly composted soil.
Space the plants 50cm apart in rows 1.2-1.5m
apart. Sow three weeks after the last frost has
finished in Cold and Temperate areas and from
September to February in Tropical and
Subtropical areas. Melons do very well when a
nitrogen fixing plant, such as clover or pea plants
are grown with them. Despite a mistaken believe
otherwise, melons do not ripen once picked so
leave them to mature on the vine
until the stem comes away from the fruit with ease.
