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.

Review:

I grew these in the desert they are extremely drought resistant, I started these in early may which everyone told me they would not make it. We had a heatwave for 2 weeks at 110 degrees. This did not effect the plant at all. I yielded about 12 fruits off of 3 plants very sweet taste just like a cantaloup but green.

Review:

Hands down one of my favorite melons; also received as a gift from my first purchase with Rareseeds two years back. Prep beds with plenty of compost, bone meal and all-purpose natural fertilizer. Feed well throughout season. They thrive on trellising producing many vines with dense foliage and prefer full sun with late afternoon shade. Prone to aphids (they took my four plants this year) and powdery mildew. Very prodigious. Wait until the melons are golden on the vine - they will literally fall into your hands at the slightest touch. That's when they're perfect. Juicy, bright-green flesh with a hint of orange towards the center. Faint pineapple aroma; tastes of honeydew and cantaloupe. Really sweet! My daughter's nicknamed it Cantadew.
