85 days. Adorable little tear-drop shaped melons just fit your hand. The cheerful golden-yellow-and green striped skin is thin like many Asian types; the fruit is eaten skin and all, like an apple. Our growers, the Gingerich family of Kentucky, first found this variety in Filadelfia in the Gran Chaco region of western Paraguay, in 1968. They grew it elsewhere in Paraguay and Belize for years before moving to Kentucky, where they have enjoyed it for several years. They and we are excited to pass this gem onto you!

Review:

I live in Austria, Europe and we have a cool, short season. I never got a ripe melon, no mather what I did. This year I try 8 varieties of melons and this one was the very first that got ripe. Its easy to grow and easy to harvest becauseit turns yellow when its ripe. It tastet wonderfull. Very sweet, very fresh and it continues to produce.

Review:

Incredible fruit, has preformed more incredibly than I could have imagined. Have gotten veryblittle special attention aside from a few doses of my fertilizer mix, never weeded and I never got around to mulching them before they grew too thickly to do so. Heavy producers, fruit is just starting to ripen for me. 13 plants currently holding 30 melons that will be ripe within about a week, and countless baby melons. I let them eat the jalapenos planted next to them, and an extra 3 feet outside the garden bed. I have them thickly planted with a 6inch spacing, growing up fencing materials. Vines do not seem to break or split when holding mature fruits draped over fencing. Though I have seen various garden pest insects on the vines, none have taken a liking to the apple melons, and they have been untouched. For those complaining of flavor, you are either not growing healthy plants, picking before ripe, or, you need to find some candy instead, as they are delicately sweet, almost like a pear.

Fun little melon

What are the pros? Easy for beginners

What are the cons? None

Review:

My one plant grew up a trellis in a small raised bed. The other types of melons planted in the same bed died. I don't know why. This little apple melon grew well & produced a nice supply of melons. It looks like a tiny watermelon until it's ripe then it turns yellow. If you eat it before it's ripe, it will be bland. We found them to be fairly unpredictable in flavor. Some were sweeter than others. We liked them. This is an easy to grow plant in a small space. I'll plant it again.

What are the pros? Survived bad drought,

What are the cons? Spreads

Review:

Planted in May on paper sheet mulching and then the drought hit. The papaya and banana melons never fruited. But this one fruited and prouduced about 5 melons per plant. It has a crisp apple like texture with a mild sweet lemon flavor. I tested a bunch of melons to see which would suit us best. This one is a winner for our zone and annual drought. I plan to plant it more abundantly next year.
