A knock-out for aroma and overall flavour, and productive earlier in the season - which translates to a better harvest potential for coastal growers. The fruits are deeply ribbed, finely netted, and globe shaped. They can be as large as 15cm (6") in diameter and weigh in at 1.8 to 2.2kg (4-5 lbs). Halona cantaloupe seeds produce cantaloupes that have exceptionally good disease resistance, including resistance to powdery mildew and fusariam wilt. Powdery mildew can be a big problem in hot, humid weather, so Halona is a good choice for coastal gardeners. These are premium quality, medium sized melons for the home garden.
