What are the pros? Don't know
What are the cons? Bad pic, or bad description!
I think I may know why this melon is almost extinct, or at least why no one seems to have bought the seeds from Baker Creek, grown it & reviewed it. Why do you describe the melon as "tasty,crisp red flesh" when your picture shows a pink & white sort of grainy looking melon pale-red at best? And the best inducement you can give for this melon is "tasty"? No wonder no one has reviewed it,and it is almost extinct! Is your picture what the melon always looks like? If so, you need to change the description. And if it isn't that sweet or delicious, maybe it should be extinct! I believe in genetic preservation but not if the melon is not worth preserving! I have never grown this melon & your picture & description do not entice me to do so. If it sounded and/or looked, like a Melon worth preserving I would have been one of the 1st to buy the seed to help preserve this melon. I am not being critical for the sake of being critical, I hope this is helpful. I love Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds!!
