Cream of Saskatchewan

Juju picked this variety of seed last fall. The first one was ripe yesterday, I barely got the knife in when it broke open in a flood of juice. Very sweet with almost a citrus-like taste. Juju thought it had a creamy feel at the finish. The rind, as you can see, is very thin so this is not a melon you would EVER see for sale at the local grocer.

She is very proud. This was her project and did the planting and most of the daily watering herself. She brought enough to school today to share with the Geek Squad at lunch.

There are 7 more on the vines at various stages, we are keeping our fingers crossed.

If anyone wants seeds, this plant is open pollinated, let me know
