80 days. Cucumis melo. Open Pollinated. The plant produces high yields of baseball size cantaloupes. The melon has yellow skin and resembles a peach. The flesh is white and has a flavor and texture much like a mango. It has a delightful aroma, a couple of vine peaches in a bowl will perfume the room with peaches and mangoes scent. The melons are the same size and color as tree peaches. Vine Peaches make excellent preserves, pies, butter, and pickles. They are grown just like the cantaloupes and muskmelons. Drought Resistant. Excellent choice for home gardens. Also known as Mango Melon. Introduced into the United States in the 1880s. An heirloom variety from China. United States Department of Agriculture, NSL 5768.
