Wow what a melon! This melon has a wonderful complex flavor. The smell is sweet and the colors are beautiful; this is a very aromatic melon. Rare old Hungarian heirloom. Prolific fruit; vines produce oval shaped golden colored melons with green streaks. Green flesh superb flavor. Ha'ogen means anchor. Pick fruit when melon turns from green to amber in color and you can smell it's aroma. This is a winner in our book!

How to Save Seeds

 

Melons will not cross with cucumbers or squash but will cross with other types of melons not to be confused with watermelons however. Muskmelons don't cross with watermelons they are from separate families. They need an isolation of at least ¼ of a mile from other melons. Once you are sure they are ripe cut them from the vine and allow to cure for a few days. Once cured cut open scoop out seeds and follow process found under cucumbers for seed saving. You can eat the flesh at this point seeds are normally ready when melon is ripe.
