82 days. F-1 hybrid. For some, the most memorable home run in MLB history is Hammerin’ Hank Aaron whacking #715 on April 8, 1974, to pass Babe Ruth’s all-time record. We’ve been looking to do a similar dethroning of Athena melon from its assumed perch. Up north in Maine’s “perfect” melon weather, Athena’s flavor and sugars sometimes strikeout, so we’ve been searching for a short season eastern shipper that hits for power consistently. The breeder says it performs well even in rainy conditions, and sure enough, Home Run was unfazed by Maine’s cold wet 2019. Just as early out of the field and to the plate as Athena, Home Run blasted us with high sugars and thick dense musky orange flesh. A bevy of 4–6 lb coarsely netted oval “dingers” were easy to pick at full slip. Approximately 5 fruit per plant.
Shipping and Combined Shipping
NYCfigs ships on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
We never 'pass the savings' of expensive shipping charges to the customer and always ship as economically as possible. Sometimes this becomes a juggling act between cost-of-goods vs. cost-of-container vs. shipment size vs. shipping cost vs. margins. With combined shipping, it's all in the packing and we'll always find the most inexpensive shipping method available. But there are times when it's impossible to ship economically and we'll always let you know before paying. The shipping for all items sold by NYCfigs will combine automatically with all other items purchased from NYCfigs. Items that ship free can't be discounted. In the rare instance of excess shipping charges, NYCfigs will refund after the invoice is paid. This ensures your items are received in a timely manner.
