Track Code4653
Short Description

Honeydew Melon 'Farmer's Daughter' has a crisp white flesh with an excellent taste and pear-like flavor.

Abstract

‘Farmer’s Daughter’ Honeydew is a powdery mildew resistant variety that is the result of six years of selecting from crosses between ‘Collective Farmwomen’ and disease resistant Cornell breeding lines.
When the fruit is mature, the stem easily pulls off, also referred to as ‘slip’, a sign that the fruit is ripe.

The melon ripens in 80 to 85 days. The fruit has a crisp white flesh with an excellent taste and pear-like flavor.
