This classic cantaloupe has juicy peach-colored flesh and a netted skin. It is prized for flavor and with care can be brought to fully ripe in the Methow Valley.  Either grow in a protected hoop house or plant under row cover for the first few weeks to give it a head start into the warmer part of the season. Melons love heat and it will flourish once real hot summer weather kicks in (sometimes not till the end of June-uary here in the North Cascades).

  • Why choose locally grown, regionally adapted seeds?

    ✿ Our seeds are intentionally bred to maximize resilience, be resistant to pests and diseases, produce vigorously, and taste delicious.

    ✿ That means our seeds come from plants grown right here and have started the process of acclimating to this region, which makes them easier to grow.

    ✿ We aim to work our land in a way that honors our human and more-than-human kin in the water, soil, and air.
