90 days.  Banana Melon produces a fruit that is long (18"-20") and shaped sort of like a torpedo.  Not what you would normally think of as a melon shape.  Fruit can weigh in excess of 5lbs. It has blue-grey skin that turns yellow as it matures.  Banana melons are smooth with very little netting.  In 1889 it was commonly available at farmer's markets in Philadelphia, New York and Boston. 

Sweet spicy flavor, salmon pink flesh.  Some say it gets its name from the shape and some say it has a banana like flavor. 

Which ever it is this novel melon has been making an impact on peoples palettes for well over a 100 years now!

Good late-maturing type.  Can stand the sun.

Contains 20 heirloom seeds
