Cucumis melo (Reticulatus-Gruppen) 'Blenheim Orange'      


Kommentar  Weaver: 'Blenheim Orange' Cucumis melo var. reticulatus. This is an English hothouse variety that has recently reappeared in seed lists of heirloom vegetables. The melon was developed in 1881 at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, England, and took its name from an apple called Blenheim Orange also developed at the same place. The melon was quickly recognized by Vilmorin (1885, 335) as one of the leading English red-fleshed sorts.
