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 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.

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.

Review:

Usually a great producer for us up to mid October. This year I planted only to get an unexpected melon of unknown type???? Three came up, one survived to produce what appears to be some sort of winter squash. Always next year.

Review:

I am up here in Southern Ontario (Zone 5b) and last season we had a very hot summer and a 6 week drought. Overall we had a great season for melons all around. We often will not get melons to ripen fully this far north if they are over 80 days, so this was a nice surprise. We grew a few of these to trial and got half a dozen or so fruits on the few plants. All fruits were between 1-2ft long and likely weighed about 5lb. Flesh was sweet and had a lovely aroma. I will grow again on a small scale for staff snacks.
