Ambrosia Hybrid Cantaloupe Seed

A proven Southern performer.

  • Long-time favorite
  • 4-5 lb. fruits
  • Very sweet and flavorful
It's no wonder gardeners come back to Ambrosia Hybrid Cantaloupe year after year. This long-time favorite produces fruits with an attractive, orange-peach flesh that is loaded with sweetness and a rich, complex flavor. The 4-5 lb. melons have a small seed cavity and are the perfect size for slicing and sharing or cutting up for fruit salads. Ambrosia was a real knock-out when introduced over 40 years ago and is still among the best flavored dessert-quality melons. Other melons are now better in disease resistance and with higher vigor, but Ambrosia is the only melon that is currently recommended by all 15 of the South's State Extension Services! Shows resistance to powdery mildew. 86 DAYS.
