Earliness and sweetness reach new
heights with this unique melon. It is the very first melon to have ripe fruit
in our trials. Brix of 15.5 is common, which is at the upper end of all
melons for high sugar.
This melon has very special color inside. Depending on
exact maturity, the color can be pale green towards the rind, then white in
the middle. A more mature melon will have a rose colored spot in the middle
of the flesh. When a bit over mature, but at its sweetest stage, there is an
orange cavity lining and no green at the rind.
Since the shelf life is relatively short, we continued
breeding, and have three more in this outstanding series.
Days to maturity: 70
Size: 6" X 5"
Rind: Sparse, distinctive netting over
green and orange skin
Interior: White fleshed,
some green towards the rind if harvested on the early side. When harvested
on the late side, may have an attractive rose colored area in the flesh.
characteristics: Soft, creamy and very sweet.
Shelf life: We do not recommend Dove for long distance shipping,
yet the interior keeps its high quality for several days.
