Melon Seeds - Ridgeway Cantaloupe, ORGANIC


Cucumis melo

ORGANIC. HEIRLOOM. The exceptionally sweet Ridgeway Cantaloupe was a national celebrity during the early 20th century, proudly served at fine dining establishments up and down the East coast. Its star fell with the advent of refrigerated trucks and cheaper melons from California, but its hometown of Ridgeway, NC still throws it a full-blown festival every year. Our strain came to us from Cherry Gal Seeds in Warrenton, NC. Very rare!
