ANANAS PINEAPPLE MELON is mentioned as early as 1777 in France with possible origins in Africa. Thomas Jefferson grew at Monticello in 1794 and it was mentioned in American seed catalogues by 1824 and in Vilmorin's "The Vegetable Garden" in 1885. The Pineapple Melon has a short shelf life, which is why it is rarely available commercially except at the rare Farmers' Market, but it is a delight to grow in the home garden. There is much confusion among seed suppliers about various cultivars. All are roughly the same, with some variations in taste and aroma and interior flesh color, ranging from white to yellow to green. The cultivar I am offering is, I think, the sweetest and most aromatic -- most "pineappley" -- of the lot. It has a creamy sweet white flesh. Fruits average 5 lbs. 90 days. 10 seeds.

GROWING MELONS: Melons are heat lovers and heavy feeders, so pick a sunny spot and spend some time preparing the soil with rich compost and creating hills for the vines to trail down. Wait until soil temp is 70 degrees to direct sow, or start indoors and harden off. Keep the beds mulched with straw as weeding will becoming impossible once the vining gets underway. The straw will also help retain moisture in the soil and melons need lots of regular watering. Once the blossoms have set, use fish emulsion as a side dressing. Some smaller varieties are suitable for trellising.
