The Navajo Heirloom melon is native to the American southwest. It is an unchanged Heirloom and will withstand drought or if you missed a watering or two. It's really resistant to poor soils; just plant and leave it alone! This variety has been grown by the Navajo tribe for centuries. Will produce nice, 3 to 7 pound melons with a yellow rind and orange flesh. Grow a piece of history and taste it today! Happy growing!!!
