Oka melon (Cucumis melo)


This melon is related to the mythical green-fleshed melon from Montreal and the Banana cantaloupe from the United States. Its orange flesh is very fragrant and its taste exquisite. It was designed in 1910 by the Trappist father Athanase of the Cistercians of Oka, formerly director of the Agricultural Institute of Oka. When the school closed in 1962, the melon disappeared... then was found on Île Bizard, where we grow it!

Melons require heat to develop well.
