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.

Review:

Wasn't sure what is was. After getting larger and larger, I called it a gourd. I picked them to dry and after fives days I smelled cantaloupe and I was amazed. Mine is a least 16 inches long and 15 inches round. Tasted, not very sweet but good. Wish a could show my picture. I'm Amazed and excited about it.

What are the pros? very productive,smells great

What are the cons? none

Review:

The only negative is that you have to wait more than other melon spieces. However, it's high resistant to any bug, it doesn't need reach ground or much water and every plant gave me about 7 to 10 fruits 2.5 kg to 4.5 kg each. i'll surelly will plant it again next year.

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.
