is Sierra Gold cantelope heirloom?
Last year I had some fun growing volunteer cantaloupe that come out of my compost pile. Worked pretty well, though I have no idea what variety I was growing. It did teach me that I had good soil and conditions for melons. This year, I decided to get a small packet of seeds, and ended up with Sierra Gold. It too is growing very well. Delicious! Given my success with composted cantaloupe seed, and since I intend to expand my patch next year, I have to wonder if Sierra Gold is a hybrid or heirloom. I can't figure it out. Anyone know? If it's an heirloom, I might as well be saving seeds.
If I did want to save the seeds, how do I do it? Just dry them out? Or do I have to ferment them as I do with my heirloom tomato seeds?
