Our Shark’s Fin Melon Cucurbita ficifolia seeds that we jad avalible for exchange were very popular last year and we are pleased to be able to offer them again this year.
The seeds we have are from Sheffield (our original source of seed) as we did not have a good crop in our garden this year. Our seed donor grows Shark’s Fin Melons on an allotment in Sheffield. The plants seems to like the micro-climate offered by the city as she and her neighbours have had a bumper crop. A friend who lives down in the valley near us also had a good crop, so perhaps we are just a bit too high up at the Trust!
See this post on the Trust website for more information on growing and using Shark’s Fin Melons
Seed is avalible in exchange for a suggested donation of £2.50 to the Trust. Money raised through donations will be put towards extending the forest garden / agroforestry planting at the Trust, as well as covering post and packing costs. If you do not live locally to us we can post a packet to you (UK only)
