Product Description
Maximum quantity available reached.

 (a.k.a. Colorado Preserving Melon) The red seeded citron is a very old melon that appeared in manuscripts as far back as the 1580’s. Citron preserves were once very popular. The white flesh was not eaten raw but used to make sweetmeats which were candied melon rind used in fruitcakes and other deserts. The 1937 McFayden catalogue had this to say about the Red Seeded Citron, "Is not eaten raw but is used to make a very clear, transparent preserve of peculiarly fine flavor. It is one fruit that every practical housewife grows in order to obtain an economical supply of preserves for use during the winter."(80 days)
