Afterglow is a unique Eastern type melon that combines genetics with the very high quality Tuscan type melon. Afterglow produces 5-7 lb. fruit that have a very firm orange flesh with excellent eating qualities and high sugars (12-14% brix). The exterior very closely resembles an Eastern type melon but the deep sutures will retain some green color. Will slip from the vine when ripe.
