Jenny Lind, organic seeds
Originating in Armenia but improved on and named in America around 1850. This unique melon was named for the Nightingale from Sweden, Jenny Lind, who was very popular in America at the time. Its juicy lime green flesh is so sweet and aromatic "that you want to burst out in song". The fruit is quite small about 0.5 kg (1 lbs.), very netted and wears a turban at the end of the flower. A portion contains about 10 seeds.
