TIMELESS GOLD

« Back

A sister line to Infinite Gold, TIMELESS GOLD is a Harper type rockmelon and has been bred for flavour, fruit quality and long shelf life (LSL) with a strong disease package of powdery mildew (Px) and fusarium (Fom). The fruit of TIMELESS GOLD are medium in size and can reach 12-14 Brix at correct maturity under favourable conditions. The vigorous vine produces fruit mainly on the crown and due to the smaller fruit size, TIMELESS GOLD is best suited to mid-season production. The non-sutured fruit have a full net and excellent uniformity with dark orange flesh and excellent firmness.
