Ananas (Pineapple) Melon Seeds

Price for Package of 20 seeds.

The Ananas Melon, known in France as "Ananas D'Amerique a Chair Verte" is one of the most popular heirloom melons grown in the United States today and is also widely grown in the Middle East. The word "Ananas", is present both in the French and Italian languages both literally translate to mean "Pineapple" in English, so another common name for this variety is Pineapple Melon. 
What is known however, is that the Ananas Melon was mentioned in M. M. Vilmorin-Andrieux's book "The Vegetable Garden" published in 1885. Vilmorin's book presents a colored plate depicting the variety. Reportedly, Thomas Jefferson was growing the Ananas Melon at his estate Monticello in 1794, while American seed companies began offering the variety commercially as early as 1824. In the years since, this wonderful melon variety became rare, but was presumedly re-discovered in a French seed bank.
 
The Ananas Melon features a light green colored flesh. The interior is firm, very sweet to the taste and is highly perfumed. The scent of the Pineapple Melon is reminiscent of a ripe pineapple, hence its name "Ananas" or Pineapple Melon. Each melon is approximately 5 pounds and has an oval shape with a netted skin. The melons are produced on a very vigorous large vine. 
Pineapple is a true "gourmet melon" that always sells well at Farmer's Markets!
