SAVE THOSE SEEDS!!!

Living in Texas you can grow those babies or atleast give it a darn good effort.

I'm east of Dallas and grow melons each year. All different types.

oh they are very yummy and good. I may get another and just count it as honeydew. I did find somewhere they were referred to as yellow honeydew. Not sure what the chemical composition means. I did click it.

Never give up or look back,

If you click on Chemical Composition, you'll see the closest thing I've found. From what I've read just now, it does look similar to a Honey Dew. Sounds yummy!

I did just put them in the trash but could dig out a few. We are in Texas and they grow in Brazil. Don't know if climate is near enough the same to grow them, but I will give them to my dad and see. He has a garden in the back yard.

I always try to save the seeds particularly of unusual melons.

Often a store will get a new melon in and you never get to eat it again because it is a seasonal fruit that just showed up on the market one particular year.

Never heard of them before.

If you haven't thrown out all of the melons you bought you should try to save the seeds and plant one this summer to see if you can grow it!

You can also save the seeds and swap them with people who can grow them if you can't.

Anyone had an Rei melon? I tasted it at Sam's Club the other day and loved it. So I bought one. Had it for breakfast and still love it. The question is - Is it a power food? Or does it need to be counted? It is similar, I think, to honeydew and that is a PF. So......what to do about this melon????? Here is the only website I found about it and of course no NI.
