F1 HybridDP Seeds VarietyWhat do these symbols mean?
(Eastern Shipper)
(7-8 lbs.) A high quality hybrid Tuscan type gourmet melon. One of the best eating melons available. Round to oval shape. Well netted, bright orange and very aromatic. Tolerant to Powdery Mildew Race 2, Fusarium Race 1 and 2 and Watermelon Mosaic Virus. Harvest at 3/4 slip when the skin changes from bluish to yellowish/tan and the stem develops a little drying or corking. If you wait until the melon slips from the vine it will be over ripe. 80-85 days.
10 days, 75-80F. Start early indoors or direct seed. *Brix is a measure of sweetness.

Sowing: Select a sunny, well-drained location and sow seed in the late spring when the soil is warm and all danger of frost is past. For earlier crop start indoors 4-5 weeks before setting out. For best results, loosen soil with spade or fork, fertilize with vegetable food and smooth with rake. Firm soil over seed and keep moist.
Care: Keep soil moist and feed monthly. Mulch to conserve moisture.
Harvest: Pick when the blossom end is slightly springy and when the stem separates with a slight pull. For best flavor, ripen on the wine.
Your Health: An excellent source of vitamin A, also supplies Calcium, Iron and Vitamins B and C.

First Time Order September 22, 2014
Reviewer: Diane Venninger from Newark, DE United States  
I ordered some of the Orange Sherbet seeds for our Graduate Students at the University of Delaware, who are researching on several kinds of fruits and vegetables. It is hard for them to purchase hybrid seeds and are always looking to venders who carry those needed for their research.
