Mae Hong Son Orange Striped Melon
Cucumis melo 'Mae Hong Son Orange Striped'
Uses: Culinary Duration: Annual
When to Sow: Spring Ease of Germination: Easy
While traveling in a remote area of Mae Hong Son, in Thailand, our plant explorers found this nice lady with a roadside stand selling large orange striped melons. The creamy green flesh was not terribly sweet, but the melons were very healthy. Because the area is very hot and humid, lesser varieties of melons probably succumb to a myriad of fungal and bacterial diseases. This melon likely has extraordinary disease resistance and could be an important source of disease resitance genes for melon breeders.
