First offered to American gardeners by SSE in 1993. An old Ukrainian variety, very popular on the island of Krim in the Black Sea. Smooth round 7-10" melons are ready to harvest when the skin turns yellowish-orange. Yellowish-white flesh is extremely sweet and fragrant. Early, ripens in central Russia and can even be grown in Moscow. 80-85 days.
