Ambrosia Hybrid Cantaloupe

Ambrosia Hybrid Cantaloupe

A proven Southern performer.

A real knock-out when introduced over 40 years ago, and 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! 86 DAYS.
