The Jenny Lind is a small wonder (weighing in at a pound or two), with sweet, juicy succulence protected by ribbed, netted skin.
The seductive, meltingly delicious pink-hued green flesh of this melon deserves every bit of renown as its namesake, Johanna Maria Lind. Ms. Lind, a Swede, caused an unbridled sensation when P.T. Barnum toured her throughout the states in the mid-1800s. Her soprano voice thrilled countless audiences, though some critics found her style a bit cold. This melon can stand a slight chill, too: it is quite happy in cooler summers, providing a taste of sweet and sumptuous indulgence to northern gardens.
