115 days — Although known as 'Honeydew' or 'Honey Dew' melons here in the United States, they are called 'White Antibes Winter' melons in Europe[1] and 'Bailan' or 'Wallace' melons in China.[2] The fruit have a smooth, creamy white skin with lime-green flesh that is incredibly sweet with a small seed cavity. They are typically seven to nine inches long and five to six inches in diameter weighing three to six pounds. They store and ship well.

Prior to their import into the United States in about 1911, they had been grown in France and Algieria for decades. About 35 seeds per one gram packet.

Planting Instructions: The seeds can be directly sown in spring after the soil has warmed or started indoors three to four weeks before your last expected frost.

Indoors, plant two to three seeds per pot, ½ inch deep, thinning to best plant. Do not disturb roots.

Outdoors, plant six to eight seeds, ½ inch deep, in hills spaced four feet apart. Transplant or thin to three plants per hill.

Young plants are cold sensitive and some cover protection at nights may be required. Mulch or cultivate to control weeds.
