“Banana Melon” is a very old heirloom melon documented to have shown up in seed catalogs in the early to mid 1880’s. The ones I grew were about 20 inches long and 8 inches in diameter with tapered ends. The weight was about 2 pounds each. The taste is mild and sweet. Pinkish-Orange Flesh is delicious. One of these melons is about like having two average-sized cantaloupes. Seed harvested in fall of 2016. Smaller Photo courtesy of Tatianna’s Tomatobase.
