1776 is a very sweet and heavily netted melon. Along with its great taste it provides significant amounts of Vitamins A and C, is a good source of potassium, and contains small amounts of many other minerals. Cut into halves, quarters, wedges, cubes, or the flesh scooped out with a melon baller, this cantaloupe is a great summer snack. It is a good performer, producing melons that average 5 pounds.
Chef Jeff’s Tip: Remove weeds as they grow, and hoe lightly to avoid disturbing the shallow root system of the plant.
