Review:

I'd never grown melons before. I was excited about my 2 melons I was growing last year. One summer afternoon, I was working in the garden on a rare super rainy day. Eaten alive by mosquitoes, drenched to the core, I finished weeding and went over to my plants to examine my developing melons. Oh cruel world! The 1.5 inches of rain we had gotten all morning caused the biggest one to split (actually, several ended up splitting on me throughout the summer). I said to heck with it. I'm hot, nasty, hungry, and parched. Let's just taste the stupid thing before it rots Delicious! No regrets. I wouldn't rate it miles ahead of a store-bought one during peak season, but it was dang tasty. The store-bought ones are sweeter during peak season than this ended up being, but this was certainly more complex and aromatic. From 3 plants I got 8 or 9 fruits. Would have had more, but pests and mildew started getting them later in the summer. Plan to grow again, though I may try others.

Review:

These are wonderful, tasty melons. I had a bit of a hard time learning how to pick them when they were ripe, but they have wonderful flavor and were easy to grow. They made great sorbet, too!

Review:

This was my first-ever success with growing melons, and I'm very, very pleased. I grew these in a container, and the vines are VERY vigorous and clambered over the hedge in front of my patio. Next year, I plan to give this and my bushel gourds hog panel arches to climb! The melons slip easily when ripe, though the rind doesn't give too much warning with color change. I got 6 melons from one vine. In a container, I think this is astonishing! The flavor and aroma are fantastic. Complex and not too sweet. Definitely on my growing plan for next year!

Review:

I got this seed as a gift from rareseeds.com. I started them indoors with the rest of my melons. Germination was excellent. I forgot I had them until I went to pick what I thought was an overrip cantaloupe. Surprise! It was green inside and the taste was out of this world. You should definitely give this one a try. I will be ordering more seed.
