Review:

We grew these last year and can't wait to grow again. If you like cumbers, this is the melon for you! I recommend direct planting the seeds and just water and watch them grow! We planted several seeds on a wide trellis and had a big harvest. I love that they are never bitter, very crunchy and juicy. We ate these in salads, or cut into sticks for dipping into hummus. They are delicious with balsamic vinegar and other vinegars. I made several batches of pickled relish with these and it was a hit! We have decided to grow these exclusively this year and not do any cucumbers.

Review:

This past summer I grew these outside and the plants were doing great. As soon as I saw some buds about ready to open my garden was ambushed by unrelenting slugs. Apparently they had a liking to these plants because within two days they were completely devoured! In the winters we grow veggies indoors on grow tables. This was my first year trying these seeds inside; they germinated quickly and grew into strong plants. They trellised great and were FULL of male flowers. Unfortunately there was only one female flower between the two plants I have growing and it shriveled up and died before it even opened up. The plants are now four months old and I still have yet to have another female bud. They have such great reviews that I will be pulling these plants and attempting one more time at them. If they don't produce next time I will be giving up on this one seeing as space is too precious when growing indoors!

Review:

Started some inside like we have with cucumbers. Lost some after transplanting. Kept losing them. Some are still growing but weak and no signs of fruit. Started some from seeds in great soil. They grew well then all of a sudden most we're wilted then died. Last year we got some fruit off of them but frost ended it. Maybe it was a bad year or it can be because it is a different species. The fruit however if you can manage to get some is far superior to any cucumber I have eaten.

Review:

If you love cucumbers, then this is the plant for you. It isn't picky, and will produce wwell in the TX heat. The taste is wonderfu, never bitter. I have been growing these for 4 years and the quality is always the same. Great fresh sliced or to juice. Fruit are large, so be prepared to pass them off to friends, or spend a lot of time canning. If you pick then young enough(12in) there are basically no seeds. Good for carving for diplays.

Review:

Baker Seed sent me these to try after my banana melons didn't germinate. The vines do take up some space, but we pull these guys off the vine daily at between 10 and 12 inches long; we have 6 mounds. We will now purchase these seeds yearly. Slightly more crunchy than traditional cukes with less defined seeds. We love them.
