Vegetable Award Winner
An early Mediterranean-type melon, 'Angel' has a heavenly flavor. All melon sugars are scientifically measured as a brix count. 'Angel' measured 16% to 19%, which indicates a very sweet flavor. The 2- to 3-pound melons have a white interior with a crisp texture. 'Angel' helps the gardener know when to harvest. The lightly netted melon skin turns creamy yellow when mature; about 60 days from planting young 'Angel' plants into the garden. 'Angel' vines will spread 6 to 7 feet and are resistant to fusarium wilt races 0 and 2.
