Review:

This is my first year growing barese melons. I bought them because according to the description, they're similar to armenian cucumbers. I love armenian cukes but haven't had a lot of success with them the last couple of years, as they take a long time to ripen and are usually overtaken by powdery mildew after harvesting only 1 or 2. This year I started barese melon seeds at the same time as armenian cukes, lemon cukes and a few other types of cukes. To my surprise, I found a ripe barese melon just a few days ago, before any of my other cukes had ripened! I picked it when it was about the size of a potato. The skin is quite fuzzy (it's soft and cute!) so we peeled it and ate it plain. It tastes like a cucumber but not even a hint of bitterness! Not too seedy either, so that's nice. And like the other reviewer said, they are firm and crunchy. We've got quite a few more that are almost ready to harvest. Very excited to be growing these. Highly recommended!

Review:

These are easy and fun to grow! They take a little longer than the average cucumber, but, they really get growing once they start. They are great when they are small, but, they get even better when they are big! The vines are very pretty and ornamental, too. Try these, you will love the sweet flavor.
