(Cucumis melo var. makuwa). Landrace Korean melon variety. This 'Sweet chamoe' cultivar has all the classic attributes that make them beloved by Koreans. Crisp flesh, with much of the sweetness coming from the seeds and pulp, these melons are somewhere between a cucumber, honeydew and apple. They range from 4-6", with yellow skin and white stripes. Sweeter than modern hybrids, the flavor is quite interesting, refreshing and somewhat floral. The plants are very vigorous and highly drought resilient. They have been improved through mass selection for having moderate fruiting patterns distributed over a long harvest window. Sweet Chamoe is a symbol of summer in Korea. They are distinctly part of Korean culture on the peninsula and in the diaspora. This variety predates Japanese intervention into chamoe breeding, where they crossed native Korean melons with Japanese cultivars. Most modern commercial strains are a product of this hybridization. This variety has been protected by small growers in Korea, and as a result, it's production habit reflects desirable traits for subsistence farmers: vigor without the need for commercial fertilizer, long harvest window reducing the need for multiple successions, and harvest volume appropriate for small scale. Days to Maturity: 65 -Self-Fertile. -Pack of 15 seeds. Germination instructions included in package.
