87 days. This popular variety dates to 1954. The long gray-green fruit grow to 20-40 lbs.; the red flesh is fiber-free and very tasty. Yields are very good, and melons are excellent for home or market.

What are the pros? These melons taste great.

What are the cons? Disease problems last year.

Review:

These melons are easy to grow, taste great, and are relatively drought-resistant. Although I've grown sweeter melons, (sugar baby), these have a perfect crisp flavor. I'm not sure what disease the melons got last year, but it was in September, and by that time I'd already got at least six melons from the plants. I think the watermelon plants I bought, and didn't start from seed, had the disease and spread it.

Review:

I've been in love with this melon since childhood. Been growing it all my life (40 ) alongside dozens of others over the years. Charleston Grey is MY WATERMELON. Like many longterm gardeners I have a handful of cultivars that are every year selections. This one, Silver Queen, Clemson Spineless, Louisiana Purple Pod, Pink Eye Purple Hull and others are as dependable as they come. Others may be a little sweeter, have smaller seeds or no seeds, unique colors or sizes but all of the others have flaws in someway that renders them less than fully reliable in my feed my family garden.

Review:

This melon has performed well for us in North Mississippi (zone 7a) although it does suffer from end rot. We also grew Sugar Baby and Yellow Moon and Stars this year, Charleston Gray by far had the best flavor. And as a bonus - big spittin' seeds! Even with our end rot problems we got good yields. Will surely grow it again.
