Rich Sweetness, Melon Seeds

Vegetables

The Rich Sweetness is a very petite little melon that typically stays the size of a baseball! These little melons usually do not exceed a quarter pound. The inner flesh is a smooth creamy white and is very juicy! These melons live up to their name and are very aromatic. Rich Sweetness' flavor is reminiscent of honeydew and cantaloupe.

Our Seed Promise

"Agriculture and seeds" provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative, we pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants.

The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, to genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems, and ultimately to healthy people and communities.
