Manuel Antonio is a melon variety originating from the area of Alpiarҫa. The variety was almost lost but recently saved, improved and now marketed again through Living Seeds. The melon variety was bred by the famous melon breeder Manuel Antonio from Alpiarҫa. The variety is known for its sweet and refreshing flesh of exceptional quality. The variety grows and performs well in a wide range of different climates, having performed well on our farm in Idanha under extreme drought and heat, as well as performing in the milder climates represented by the Ribatejo. The seeds were grown on our farm, and the variety will continue to be selected in coordination with the official maintainers in alpiarҫa, ensuring that you get the very best seeds of this variety.
