Amy brings to life hundreds of varieties of melons and watermelons in her new book, “The Melon”, reviewed in Seed Savers Exchange’s quarterly membership publication, Heritage Farm Companion:

A sequel to Amy’s Melons for the Passionate Grower, published in 2002, The Melon delves deeper into the crop, including information on its history, taxonomy, growing methods, and seed-saving practices. Most of the book is dedicated to profiles of individual melon and watermelon varieties with accompanying photographic portraits that arouse the eye and tantalize the palate.

“The Melon”: Available now.

Created over the course of nine years, The Melon is both an information-packed resource and a visual delight. This definitive compendium on melon and watermelon reflects recent research findings and Goldman’s growth as a gardener since the publication in 2002 of her award-winning book, Melons for the Passionate Grower.
