Description: This melon came to us from Mr Hugh Price, a wonderful elderly grower near Opotiki, We find this one to be a healthy vigorous, heavy cropper of huge long banana shaped melons. They are sweet and have orange delicate flesh, which is eaten in long thin strips!!

Planting Instructions: Sow seeds into trays and prick out at 10 cm diagonal spacing or plant into 10 cm pots. Transplant into rich free draining soil (under cloches if necessary). Transplant when plants have 2-4 true leaves at 50 cm diagonal spacing.
