The fruits are deeply ribbed, finely netted, and globe shaped. They can be as large as 15cm (6") in diameter and weigh in at 1.8 to 2.2kg (4-5 lbs). Halona cantaloupe seeds produce cantaloupes that have exceptionally good disease resistance, including resistance to powdery mildew and fusariam wilt. Powdery mildew can be a big problem in hot, humid weather, so Halona is a good choice. These are premium quality, medium sized melons for the home garden.
