I opened the bottle of your vanilla extract last weekend to bake some cookies and the difference in taste is extraordinary." – Judy

Musk Melon


Muskmelon, Cucumis melo is a species of melon that has evolved, through breeding, into a variety of the melons now grown worldwide.  It originated in Northwestern India, thereby qualifying it as tropical, and from there was taken to China and Europe. 

A vine-growing plant, it is related to the cucumber family. Melons are considered an accessory fruit or epigynous berry, though it’s a little difficult to imagine a large honeydew melon as a berry.  Because most melons were developed north of the tropics, we will only mention that they began in the tropics and were developed elsewhere.
