Jenny Lind Melon http://hppr.org en Jenny Lind Melon Celebrates Long History http://hppr.org/post/jenny-lind-melon-celebrates-long-history <p>A heritage melon with a history of over one hundred and fifty years is our GHP subject for this week.&nbsp; Named for a famous Swedish musical celebrity that toured the U.S. in 1850 via P.T. Barnum's Greatest Show on Earth, the Jenny Lind melon became wildly popular.&nbsp; This melon displays many of the qualities of its namesake, including sweetness and a small dainty size, and thus was perfect for growing in a backyard garden.&nbsp; Today this heritage fruit is still popular, and easy to grow and serve.</p> Thu, 13 Sep 2012 15:30:00 +0000 Skip Mancini 6324 at http://hppr.org Jenny Lind Melon Celebrates Long History
