Gang:

Well why looking through old Pomonas for Donna I did determine that Melons are a NAFEX approved topic as at least one discussion was printed  in Pomona in April of 1981.

In an article entitle “A Melon For Northern Gardeners” David Imes who lived about a quarter mile form the Canadian Border in Minn experimented with growing 30 varieties of melons, direct seeded outdoors.  He found one winner, a melon known as Early Dawn.  So for colder climate growers it looks like you have a melon with potential to run some trails with in the future.  

Regards,

Lil ol' me
