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.

Review:

We ordered Black Diamond Yellow Flesh in 2011 and Charleston Grey's grew from the seeds. I know they were Charleston Grey's because we have grown this variety before and recognize it. The rind is a distinctive light color with slightly darker netting or striping. Hard to describe but easy to recognize... not exactly like the painting above. They grow well in South Louisiana. No bug problems. Love the heat. Get really big... I bet the heaviest one we got this year was 45 lbs or more. 3 or so melons per vine. Tasty. Not overly sweet. A distinct flavor... not the pale watery flavor of store-bought crap. I make watermelon juice out of them because they have such a flavor (blend and strain the flesh... needs a little sugar and lime juice for zing). We use these rinds to make watermelon rind preserves. You should try that if you have not.
