Pie Melon

  • Botanical Name: Citrullus lanatus

Heirloom used as a base for making jams and preserves. The fruit grows and outwardly looks like a Watermelon. However the flesh is white, non sweet and once the pips are removed makes an excellent medium for preserving jams, fruits, pickles etc. Kept whole the fruit will last up to six months if stored cool and dry. Treat as you would a Watermelon. Harvest fruit in the autumn when the vine starts to die back.
