This historic heirloom was grown by Thomas Jefferson in 1794. It was offered commercially in the USA in 1824, and it was illustrated in color in France in 1854 in the Vilmorin Album. This wonderful variety has become very rare. The fruit have netted skin and light green flesh that is firm, sweet and highly perfumed. Productive plants can be trained up a trellis.

What are the pros? easy to grow

What are the cons? needed insect protection

Review:

This melon was pretty easy to grow and produced 3-4 2lb-3lb fruits per plant. When picked ripe, they were great tasting. Ripe when disconnects from the stem. My problem was that wasps where burrowing into the fruit just before they needed picked. Maybe this was a bad year for wasps here, but if I let they fruit properly ripen they would get attacked, if I picked earlier they were not as sweet. Next time I will try to protect the fruit from insects.

What are the pros? the history of this melon

What are the cons? texture

Review:

We've been growing melons for years, and this is one of the few we did not care for. It was very productive, compact vines, cute little melons, fragrant, and sweet....which are all the things we like in a melon. But we found this melon to be really soft and mushy when ripe. If we picked before the flesh turned soft, it had no flavor or sweetness. If we waited until fully ripe, they were too soft to sell. None of our buyers liked them. I'm sure there are plenty of people who will like this melon and won't mind the soft texture, but we couldn't sell the small crop we grew.

Review:

I planted this melon last year along with others. We had a rough season last year and none of my melons did well at all. I had to give this a 5 rating for easy to grow as it came up volunteer in my potatoes this year. I put up a scrap piece of hog wire for a trellis and it made a beautiful melon support. I probably would have gotten more than 3 melons from one plant ( there are lots of little lemon size melons that won't mature), had I planted it myself early in the spring. The flavor is sooo sweet and fragrant. My friends swear they will never buy store bought melon again. I will grow this one next year!

Review:

First time growing these melons. I have to say that I was blown away with the flavor and fragrance of this melon..probably one of the best I've ever eaten. It matured early and while I only got a few melons off the plant and they were smallish, the ones I ate were exquisite. We had a difficult year here with a lot of excess moisture and hot humid weather. You could not miss the ripe melons as you walked past the plant as the fragrance was all thru the garden. I also grew Ha'Ogen..another honeydew type melon and it wasn't even close to having as much flavor and fragrance as this variety. Will definitely grow next year.

Review:

Tried these in 2015 but it was a bust. I had planted too late. In 2016 got the seeds sown early enough and was actually able to enjoy these melons. I liked them even better than the Petit Gris de Rennes. Where I live, summer nighttime temps rarely get above 53, but that wonderful El Nino bumped a number of nights to 55 and that was enough to get them to ripen. I envy those who enjoy warm summer nights because if I had that I'd have a garden filled with these melon plants.
