Pint size cantaloupe

Look what I harvested!  It’s a Minnesota midget cantaloupe.  Looks like, tastes like, smells like the real thing but it’s all in a pint size. 

This 2 serving size heirloom melon is ideal for a large container or small garden with its 3’ long vine vs. 9’ for the standard size.  It’s ready to harvest a full 3 to 5 weeks earlier than its big brother.  As its name suggests, it was bred by the University of Minnesota in 1948 specifically for shorter growing seasons in the northern regions.
