Plant Information
Pretty and petite, the Jenny Lind melon variety is named after one of the most popular opera singers of the 19th century. It's been a favorite since its introduction in the 1840s and is loved by modern-day gardeners for its unique turban shape, deliciously sweet flavor, and juicy, light green flesh. Each vine produces several beautiful fruits that will weigh 1-2 pounds when mature. Growing your own Jenny Lind melons is so much better than buying them in the store. Not only are vine-ripened melons bigger and juicier, they're also more fragrant and flavorful. This is because growing them yourself allows them to stay on the vine, where they can soak up all those amazing nutrients and sugars until the very last minute before harvesting. You'll know your Jenny Lind melons are ready to be picked when the skin color between the rind netting is no longer green. The ends will be softer and the blossom end will also have a wonderfully fruity aroma. Gently tug on the melon, and if it detaches without much effort, it's ready to enjoy.
