Harper melon with extended shelf life. Fruits average a size 9 and weigh about 2 kilograms on average. Shape is a bit oblong, fruits have a tight cavity and net and do not disconnect or slip from vine upon maturity. Being that the melons are long shelf life, they do very well when transporting long distances. Even though being a harper, taste is fantastic with a high brix, averaging 14 degrees. Maturity from both direct seed and transplant date is very early, ensuring that growers are first to market. Excellent choice for this segment based on quality, yield and health of plants.
