1903 Maule's Seed Company Catalog says about Rocky Ford Melon...
"Rocky Fords are famous in the fancy markets and great sellers. They are of convenient size and their firmness and shape favor them as shippers. As to quality, they appeal to the taste of epicures everywhere and hence are in brisk demand and find a prominent place on the counters and shelves of fashionable fruit stores and market stands. ....a most appetizing flavor and aroma. Flesh is both tender and firm; tender enough for the table and firm enough to stand shipment. The rind is elastic, but not hard."
