Banana Melon

90 days. Banana-shaped fruit with smooth yellow skin and sweet, spicy salmon flesh. 16-24 inches long, 5-8 lbs. It was listed in 1885 by J. H. Gregory's Catalogue, which said, "When ripe it reminds one of a large, overgrown banana... It smells like one, having a remarkably powerful and delicious fragrance." This is one of my all- time favorites, being very sweet and great for specialty markets.

What are the pros? Fun to grow

What are the cons? Slow to ripen

Review:

This was our first year (2014) growing these. There is not a lot information about when to harvest these so I spent a lot of time second guessing myself about when to pick them. They start out dark green then turn pale green. They were a very pale green for a very long time then one day in a matter of 10 hours the first one turned from a pale green to a very bright yellow and became much softer. It was very juicy and tasted like a sweet cantaloupe. There was a very thick amount of green flesh and then a smaller amount of orange flesh. I have decided to wait an extra day or two to pick the next one because I think more of the melon will be edible if I wait. These were no harder to grow than any other melon we grew. They produced more fruit than I expected considering how large they are.

One with green flesh
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 2.5
 

What are the pros? delicious, frangrant and uniqu

What are the cons? Odd specimen with green flesh

Review:

I have grown these for several years now, and they are a hit--with us and when I take them to local farmers markets. I have grown, cut and sampled probably well over a hundred of them, and was very very surprised to cut one that had a sweet green flesh just last night. It was ripe. It just had green flesh. Has anybody else experienced this? I really want to know, since I sell them and want to give my customers as much information as possible.

Love this melon

What are the pros? Easy to grow, tasty

What are the cons? None

Review:

I love this melon. It's easy to grow, and I get many large melons. The taste is similar to cantaloupe. They are fairly pest-resistant. Earwigs like to burrow into the skin, but that's not a serious issue, as I haven't had any problems with them damaging the interior of the melons.
