Uzbek - Russian melons?

happyballz(9A/B Valrico,Florida)August 13, 2012

Hello everyone,

I been trying to find some seeds of Uzbek/Russian melons. The one I tasted in Russia was extremely sweet and honeydew-like. Definitely one of the best tasing ones I ever had...wanted to get them ever since but so far no luck.

I would appreciate if someone knew a place where I could find some seeds or have some to offer.

The melon I am looking for is yellow with white/lightly yellow net. Oval/oblong in shape and quiet big in comparison to the one sold in stores here- about 12+ inches.

I'll try offer something in exchange if needed of course.

I originally posted this request in Fruit & Orchard but people suggested to post it here. Original post for reference: http://forums2.gardenweb.com/forums/load/fruit/msg0817010817357.html?4&rnd=uJw1B

This was the first website I found when I googled it.

They ship internationally, but it looks like they're based in the US.

Here is a link that might be useful: Uzbek Sweetness Melon

Moiraine,
Thanks, I seen the website but they been out of stock for awhile now.

Ravshan,
I sent you an email earlier. Hopefully it will work out since you are located there! Thanks!

If anyone finds any place to buy them here please do post since I do not know how strict customs are on importation of seeds.
Thanks gardenwebers.

I found this Uzbek melon in a local Armenian grocery store, and have seen articles in the newspaper about this grower. Anyway, I have seeds from this melon. Let me know if you want to trade!

I'm trying to post a photo of the melon--I'm new at this forum, so apologies if this doesn't work.

mpcardenas,
Yeah, that looks to be very close to what I was searching for! I would definitely like to get some seeds. I'll do a SASBE like another person suggested from my other thread.

But I don't really have any exotic varieties of melons to offer...just started planting myself :)

I will post what I have melon-wise later on tonight.

Ravshan,

If you are still following this thread please check your email ... I still have not heard back from you!

Thanks everyone, keep it coming :) !
