Melon 'Crenshaw'

Melon (Hybrid)
Large melons with wonderful sweet flavor!

Nicknamed the “Cadillac of Melons.” The Crenshaw features a waxy buttercup-yellow rind and tender juicy peach to salmon-pink flesh. It is seductively sweet but not overwhelming. The vigorous vines produce bumper crops of oval fruits up to 14 lb. each-even up North. Firm, thick, peach-pink fruit has delicious, subtle flavor; great for freezing. Dark green skin ripens to yellowish-green. Melons do best when grown in clusters (hills).

  • Fruit Weight: 10-14 lbs.
  • Spacing: 3-6 feet
  • Days to Maturity: 90 Days
