Cucumis melo var. dudaim (Queen Anne’s Pocket Melon) [15 Seeds]


I cannot ship these seeds to Arizona or California. Please do not try to order them if you live in these states.

Germination Information: You could start the seeds indoors (about 1/4″ deep) in mid- to late spring, if you want to get an early start, but it’s easier to just sow them directly in your garden around your last frost date. I usually sow three seeds together in the pot or ground. Let the plants sprawl or give them a vertical support.

Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

Please read the description as well before ordering.

Queen Anne’s pocket melon (Cucumis melo var. dudaim), also known as plum granny, isn’t particularly ornamental in the garden–looking like any ordinary melon vine, with small yellow flowers—but its fruit is a real sensory treat indoors. The tennis ball-sized, orange- and yellow-striped melons look terrific displayed in a decorative bowl and release a delicious, fruity scent. It’s a pity they don’t taste anything like they smell: though edible, their white flesh is mushy and has little flavor (the ones I tried, anyway). Tuck one, or a few, of the vining plants in a corner of your vegetable garden to give yourself and your friends a fragrant treat in summer and fall. Full sun. Annual.

Collected in mid to late August 2022. At least 15 seeds. Shipping to US addresses only (except AZ and CA).
