A variety of muskmelon as delicious as it is old. W. Atlee Burbee introduced the melon in 1886, describing it as “altogether unapproached in delicious flavor and luscious beyond description.” We agree. Not quite as early as PMR, but better flavor and higher yields. Expect lots of 2-3 lb fruits with creamy, orange flesh and a rich, cinnamon aroma.
