Tiger melon

Post  Josh on 8/24/2011, 5:15 pm

I picked my first tiger melon today. It had a citrus smell to it, sorta like an orange. I cut it opened and it is white inside. It was suppose to taste like a pear. To me it tasted like a cantaloupe, only it had the texture of a pear.
I read that back in the old days (boffer may remember Wink ) that ladies would put them in the pantry to make it smell good, like a airfreshner.

Anyway it was interesting, easy to grow and a good tasting little melon.

I grew some of those also. They're also known as Queen Anne's pocket melons. Supposedly, Victorian women would carry them around as a sort of perfume or deodorant. They are very fragrant melons. I think I picked mine too early because it was pretty tart. Pretty cool little melons.

Very nice! I was just reading about those the other day in the Seed Savers' catalog (yes, I was reading a seed catalog. I think that makes me a dork). They look really cool!

littlesapphire, a lot of us spend hours and hours reading our seed catalogs. study

Many, many catalogs. It helps us get our gardening fix during the winter, when we are planning for spring.
