The sweetest melon in Twin Oaks’ 2014 SARE-funded Downy Mildew trial, with 11.8 median brix in conditions of high DM pressure (median brix for Athena was 7.4). Also had excellent foliage ratings for DM. Sweetness is a good indicator of DM resistance, as plants with dead leaves don’t make sweet fruit. Small fruits (1.5 pounds) with medium to light netting. Average tolerance to Bacterial Wilt, so consider using row cover on young plants to control cucumber beetles that transmit the disease. Not commercially available elsewhere. Grown by Sycamore Farm. Certified Organic by Baystate Organic Certifiers.
