Boule D'or Melon AKA Golden Perfection Rare 20 Seeds Beautiful Non-GMO Heirloom
19th-century, French heirloom market melon that is prolific, hardy, and mildew resistant. It is a honeydew melon variety which, when ripe, has a deep lemon-colored, loosely netted skin with a pale green, honey-sweet flesh that emits tropical and slightly perfumed aromatics. Can grow to an average of 7 to 10 inches in diameter.
The Boule D'or was first listed in 1885 in Vilmorin's book "The Vegetable Garden" (the first-ever seed catalog published for farmers and growers) but as with many heirloom varieties, finding its seeds today is a rarity. Fruits will keep for several weeks if kept cool and dry. Very hard to find.
