Pride of Wisconsin Muskmelon
946PW Pride of Wisconsin Muskmelon (90 days) Open-pollinated. Welcome to melon nirvana, that rare moment of absolute perfection: the smooth texture and juicy refreshing sweetness that satisfy through and through with just the right delicate balance and no musky aftertaste. Move over, Minnesota! Pride takes its place alongside Golden Gopher as the best. Extremely high-quality large oval salmon-fleshed 5–7 lb fruits have coarse netting and compact seed cavities. Edible all the way to the rind. Tends to crack at the blossom end during wet seasons. Not recommended for long-distance shipping. Known as Queen of Colorado when it was introduced in 1923 by the St. Louis Seed Co, good enough to have been claimed by more than one state. Widely offered in the ’40s and ’50s by the likes of Burpee and Eastern States Cooperative. All but disappeared from the trade after the onset of hybridization, maintained by just a handful of seed savers. “Thanks for bringing back Pride of Wisconsin—I have missed it all these years,” said Caroline Ives of Hinesburg, VT.
