ARGITIKO GREEK MELON SEEDS
Price for Package of 10 seeds.
Fruit: weight 3-4 kg, oval with a very sweet taste and strong scent. The color of the fruit is yellow. This strange looking melon is an Argitiko Peponi. It is obvious to everyone but us that this fruit comes from Argos, people seem surprised that we aren't familiar with this melon. They say to us very slowly "Argitiko, from Argos". Argos is a city in the Northern Peloponnese, and has a reputation for being extremely fertile. I have been told that they have a great market day in the city that is not to be missed if you like fresh produce. Argos has been continuously inhabited for more than 7000 years, since the days of Ancient Greece.
Enough with your Greek history lesson for the day.
What you need to know is that if you encounter an Argitiko Peponi you should buy one, because they taste fantastic. They look like a cantaloupe when you cut them open, but they are as sweet as candy with some floral overtones. They have a wonderful scent, even if they are sitting uncut in your kitchen.
