An improved Crenshaw variety. Oval fruit are about 5 lbs. each and have a creamy white rind when ripe, flesh is salmon-pink, extra sweet and of a very fine flavor. Great for specialty markets and shipping.

Review:

I planted seeds around Memorial Day Weekend and just picked first melon yesterday, Sept 9. I had a small hill with 3 plants and got 3 melons, all about 4.5 lbs. I had another hill with 2 plants and only got 1 melon to pollinate which unfortunately was destroyed by something mid-way through the season (rodent maybe?). Anyway, I was unsure about when to pick because not much info on this melon was available online. The rind started turning from green into a cream color in early September. The melon was still firm and no sign of slipping from the vine. Not wanting any critters to get to it before me, I picked yesterday. I had to use considerable effort to get it off the vine so I thought it might not be ripe. I was wrong - it was pretty much perfect. Even though these take a long time to harvest, I will grow them again and recommend them.

Review:

Advantages: Vigorous vines take heat. Rind not as soft as Crenshaw (but softer than the typical netted muskmelon). Prettier than Crenshaw. Pale fruit less susceptible to sunscald and splitting than Crenshaw (I still provided some sun protection). Picked fruit 2 days after the small leaf nearest fruit dried completely. Stem slipped from fruit with very firm pressure. Fruit had softened slightly, especially at the blossom end. Rind color cream with fine, sparse netting, slight yellow blush on top side and faint green streaking at both ends. Not over-ripe at this stage. Salmon flesh extended almost to the rind, 2 inches thick in a 6.25 inch diameter melon. Very juicy, tender, slightly fibrous. Flavor lighter, not as complex as Crenshaw, has a honey-like note. Refreshing chilled. I like the flavor and texture of Crenshaw a little better, but Crenshaw Blanco is an easier melon to grow. Remember to restrict water as the melon ripens.
