Thanks, Sales, for the notification. Trees received today well-watered and packaged immaculately. We weren't in when the delivery driver called, but he left the trees stable and in a sensible place in our garden. A good effort all round, so you all deserve a bouquet!

Alongside the likes of cucumbers and pumpkins, both melon and luffa plants are members of the Cucurbitaceae family, and as such provide fleshy fruits that can be enjoyed in a variety of culinary ways.
Whether it be a huge Watermelon or a tiny Mouse Melon (Cucamelon) we really do urge you to give these a go!
A very old variety. Medium sized fruits have a pale green-grey skin and deep orange very juicy flesh. One of the easiest varieties for the novice.
Supplied as a packet of 6 seeds.
A fascinating subject that grows wild in India. Similar in growth habit to a Cucumber. Leave to mature and dry for making bath luffas and even slippers!
Supplied as a packet of approximately 7 seeds.
Sometimes know as the Mexican Sour Gherkin. Tiny watermelon shaped fruits are produced in abundance all summer long. Perfect for salads, pickling or desserts.
Supplied as a packet of 10 seeds.
Perfect for protected growing in the UK. Elongated fruits have a grey-green fairly thick skin; inside the flesh is pinky-orange and crisp to the bite.
Supplied as a packet of 8 seeds.
