Very early melon.
Delicious 51 produces 6" round cantaloupes that have salmon orange flesh, sparse netting and very aromatic.
Fruits weigh between 2-3 pounds and are slightly ribbed.
If you like hybrid melons you should give this one a try for its disease resistance and early yields.
Great for the home gardener or farmers market, but does not ship well because the skin is not thick.
Disease Resistant: Fusarium Wilt, Powdery Mildew
