We thank our Amish neighbors for giving us the seeds to start this heirloom beauty of a cantaloupe. Once we tasted it, we just knew we had to grow it. If you like cantaloupe, do not pass this one up. You will not be disappointed in it’s deep orange color high in beta carotene or sweetness.
The Amish grow all organically and have for centuries. They have also saved many ancient vegetable varieties that would have perished if they had not saved the seeds from generation to generation. This concept of saving heirloom seeds is now making a comeback as growers are realizing many of our best fruits and vegetables will be lost if we do not preserve them in the seed library now.
