Gone But Not Forgotten
|Just the images make me hungry.
But those with reviews that I read were mostly in California; the only exception is the one that Thomas Jefferson planted and one review was from the north, but I don't know where. And they didn't tell the number of days from planting to fruit for most of them. I've become very aware of zones and days needed to bear fruit because my climate has gone bananas in the past few years. What I used to be able to grow quite easily, I'm having trouble growing now. One thing I'm having to adjust is the start date so the horrible drought doesn't get the veggies before I do. Thanks goodness for the new planting calendar; I'm hoping it will help since my old dates were appropriate for years ago, but with a zone change, not anymore.
But I wonder if Baker has a list of zones where some of these rare seeds grow better than others. I haven't been able to find such a list.
At any rate, it's a great and very interesting list. The creamy melon looks so good, like it would have a tropical flavor.
Thanks so much, Trish - you've widened my horizons!

|All of these are new to me, and they look so tasty, especially the melon.
Now I'm hungry.

|I got two packets of the American melon mentioned. It was my free gift.|

|And how did these turn out?
I am bookmarking this article so when I order seeds---I include some of them.
Would it be an idea for every gardener to grow just one rare or endangered species ?
