Cershownski Melon Seed. A very exciting find! The seeds of this melon were given to me by Jake Rempel of Halbstadt, Manitoba. Jake's mother, Mrs. Tina Rempel, believes it was brought over from the Southern Ukraine by her great grandparents, Jacob Kehler and Kathrina Penner in July of 1874. It has been passed on in Jake's family ever since! It is rare to find such a well documented history on an old variety so this makes it all the more interesting. To make this find even more exciting I believe that this is a strain of the extremely rare Cob Melon. The center of the melon is filled with a cob like structure containing seeds so it is easiest to cut around the melon lengthways against the center core of seed, take the top half in one hand , the bottom half in the other and the twist the two halves apart. This is how Jake's family has been doing it for generations. The fruit average 8-9" in length and 5-6" in diameter and the mildly sweet flesh is a light green to cream color. EXTREMELY RARE.
