Looking for all the world like miniature watermelons, citrons are bound to disappoint anyone who attempts to eat one raw. The flesh is hard, white, and practically tasteless. Citrons are eaten primarily in a pickled form, with the dominant flavoring usually that of cloves and cinnamon. The vines are also quite similar to watermelon, as is this plant's culture. When processing citron, save the seeds, dry them, and plant to thickness of seed when the weather turns warm in late May or early June.
Though grown in Amana gardens, Citron Melon is not a variety peculiar to Amana. Seed is available commercially in the United States, e.g. from Stokes Seeds, Buffalo, NY.
