Cucamelon - Annapolis Seeds
Cucamelon
Price: $3.00

(Melothra Scabba) aka: Mouse Melon, Mexican Sour Gherkin. A contender for world’s cutest vegetable! Resembling tiny watermelon, these grape sized fruit taste a lot like cucumber with a tart citrus hint. Really good eaten out of hand, and they make unique pickles. An awesome conversation starter!

The vining plants love to climb, and can reach 8 feet if trellised, but they’re happy sprawling on the ground too. The fruit may be small but are produced in great abundance. Cucamelons love the heat, so give them full sun... similarly to cucumbers or melons.

Early Moonbeam Watermelon - Annapolis Seeds
Early Moonbeam Watermelon
Price: $3.00

Beautiful, medium sized melons with luscious yellow flesh. Early maturing, ours ripen early September most years. We found them sweeter and fruitier tasting than the average red watermelon. They're quite large for a short-season melon; our biggest specimens could almost compete with supermarket watermelon. 20 seeds

An early maturing, cool climate adapted cantaloupe. We had perhaps our finest melon crop ever with this variety in 2014, beginning in late August we were picking dense, fragrant orange fruits by the wheelbarrow full! They keep on producing right through September. Developed in the 1960s by Elwyn Meader. 25 seeds (0.75 g)

Citron Melon - Annapolis Seeds
Citron Melon
Price: $3.00

A traditional melon for preserves and marmalades. At one point they were popular in the Maritimes, but are now hard to come by. Stores after harvest extremely well for a melon.

Citron is to watermelon what zucchini is to squash; not sweet and juicy but instead green and firm, with that distinctive melon essence. Think green watermelon rind, but all the way through. It gets the name Citron not for it's taste, which isn't citrus-like, but because in more balmy climates it often grows wild in citrus groves. 20 seeds

Montreal Melon - Annapolis Seeds
Montreal Melon
Price: $3.00

(Cucumis melo) An exquisite and historic melon, well adapted for our climate. Netted skin and green flesh. Their flavour isn't musky like some cantaloupe, but light and richly fruity. For peak flavour, harvest the fruit when still firm and mostly green. When the green flesh ripens to yellow they're slightly over-mature. Part of the Slow Food Ark of Taste. 20 seeds

Their story
: Around 1900, these beautiful melons were grown extensively on the fertile farmland on the Island of Montreal. Famous for their rich flavour, they were exported to many other eastern cities. But as food systems homogenized in the mid 20th century, they didn’t prove adequately uniform or shippable, and so they fell out of favour. As the city grew and swallowed up nearby farmland this variety was nearly lost... it was thought to be extinct until it was re-discovered in the 1990s. Today they're enjoying a
renaissance of popularity. We're really happy we can still offer this variety, all these years later!
