This melon seedstock is part of Care of the Earth Community Farm’s project to dehybridize Magnificenza F1, a well-known organic Italian orange muskmelon. Megan and Lalo began selecting for two different melons in 2022. “Greta Round” is a smaller, well-netted, round melon with medium-high brix, very good flavor, and good storage. Its texture and flavor are reminiscent of a Charentais melon. It shows field resistance to Fusarium Wilt and intermediate resistance to both Bacterial Wilt and Downy Mildew. Melons average 1.5-2 pounds, with an occasional larger melon and ripen in 78-80 days. Pick at full-slip, when external color begins to turn from green to yellow. These seeds were saved from a planting that produced 100% round, netted melons - but still expect some variability. Named in honor of climate activist Greta Thunberg.
Greta Round-Selection Melon carries the Open Source Seed Initiative (OSSI) pledge. OSSI is a movement to help combat corporate monopolization of seeds. Read more at www.osseeds.org.
