55101 - Crimson Sweet
85 days. [1964. AA S winner.] Medium-sized, striped melon with tolerance to anthracnose (race 1 and 3) and Fusarium (race 1 and 2). Melons are typically 10” x 12”, weighing 23-27 lbs. Requires more space but has advantage of disease tolerance where disease is a problem. A unique feature of this variety is its ability to promote beneficial soil fungi that inhibit fusarium wilt. A reliable variety for the Southeast. This is the variety many melon lovers come back to after trying the rest!
