The fruit weighs 5 to 6 pounds, and it's mostly flesh -- the seed cavity is small and the rind reasonably thin, with heavy netting and a slight ribbed shape. (The melons reach 7 inches long and about 6 inches in diameter.) The flesh is simply delicious -- strongly scented, very juicy, yet with a solid melon "bite" that fills you up nicely.
Hale's Best Jumbo arises on strong, vining plants that can spread 5 feet wide and reach about a foot tall. The fruit matures in the hottest summer weather, just when a chilled melon is about the next thing to heaven!
Hale's Best is our best selling cantaloupe for mid to large scale farming operations. It is adapted to hot climates and the 6 to 7 pound sweet, juicy fruit make this a top-seller!
