I live in zone 8b @ 2600 ft elev. First try for Ananas Melon in my garden. This year all melons seemed to have trouble germinating on time. The Ananas however are heavy producers once started. I should have heeded the last or first reviewers comment about the ripening of this wonderfully delicious melon. They stay green looking until they are dead ripe. Then overnight it turns to a light netted color more like a generic cantelloupe and the stem falls off by itself. If you don't find it and eat it right away it will start to decompose. The first one I found that was ripe I luckily noticed the morning it had changed color. I went to pick it up to see if it was ripe and the stem was not attached to the melon? So I took in the house. The next day about 10AM I went into the house to find my wife had the melon 3/4 eaten and the biggest smile on her face. She started laughing. She said it was sooooo gooood that she couldn't stop eating it once she started. Give it a try.
