Another melon I have wanted to try at the Bountiful Blessings Farm is the Healy's Pride melon. This melon originated in Illinois, so it makes it very intriguing to me. This melon is a big, pretty, oblong melon with musky-sweet orange flesh. It is heavily netted and up to 15 lbs in size. This melon was developed by E.J. Healy of St. Francisville, Illinois and it is a great melon for most of the Midwest and was introduced in 1952. It has high quality flesh and a great taste making for some great eating.
This year we will be planting some of these babies in the field. We are sure they will be very well received.
