(Cucumis melo) Grown in Appalachia by settlers who brought them with them from Europe, Plum Granny Melons are primarily used for the pretty melon fragrance that they produce. Fruits are small (apple sized) and produced on climbing plants. Not traditionally eaten (flesh is white and bland) but set inside (or carried in pockets during Victorian times) - just a few pretty melons can fill a room with their fragrance. Will climb 5-6 feet. Most/full sun. 15 seeds.
