Athena Muskmelon is the widely used melon in the Eastern US by growers looking for holding ability both on the shelf and for shipping. The 5 to 7 lb. melons have light ribs, medium netting and tend to stay firm even when harvested at full slip. Athena melon does not trade flavor for firmness, making it the melon of choice by growers in the Eastern US. Resistant to FW (0,1,2) and PM (1,2).
