what does Jenny Lind melon really look like?
Mine are about the size of a large navel orange, maybe 10-12 ounces. They have netting, green skin even when ripe, green flesh with orange toward the seed cavity, no knob, slight to no ribbing. From Pinetree seeds (who this year sent me a swan-neck gourd instead of a pumpkin Vif d'Etampes.) Oh, and flavor is nice but not extraordinary. And the leaves browned and died as the melons were ripening.
When I google JL, I get 1) a melon with very deep ribs 2) a melon with a very distinct knob, either weighing a pound to a pound and a half.
What is the really Jenny Lind?
