Cucumis melo (hybrid)
You may have seen canary melons in the grocery store and wondered what they taste like. Popular in Asia and Europe, these bright yellow melons have a smooth rind that protects the sweet, pale green to white flesh. ‘Tweety’ produces 4–6 lb. juicy, sweet, crisp fruits with undertones of cantaloupe and tropical fruit. Stores well after harvest. Plants are resistant to Fusarium wilt (1, 2), gummy stem blight, and Alternaria. Frost-sensitive, sprawling vines grow up to 4′-5′ long. Botanical Interests’® Canary Tweety Melon Seeds have been verified by The Non-GMO Project.
