Review:

"Found" two of these in the garden. Wow! What a great melon. We saved the seeds to plant next year. They say they are a hybrid of casaba and Persian melons. Curious to see what we get when we grow them next year.

Review:

As a grower of muskmelons, I have tried many varieties, but none are as fragrant or as mouthwatering as the crenshaw. It is probably the most fragrant muskmelon I have ever grown, and it takes just like it smells. That's saying something! I have probably grown over 30 of the most common and popular muskmelons, but this is definitely one of the top five, not kidding!

Review:

2011 Got 3 melons very sweet and tasty, plants grew very well even up a trellis, lots of flowers, but wasn't producing the fruit. Probably the 2 months of 100+ straight weather. Was excited about planting this year from saved seeds another let down, rabbits kept eating the blooms.Wife yanked the plants when they seemed they might recover. Nada, Zilch, Zero this year, still have seeds will try again next year. I believe under right conditions this one is a winner.

Review:

I grew these in Denver and they worked well. We had a rainy summer and I watered it copiously nearly every day. I picked them when still green as frost was forecasted, and they tasted great.

Review:

This melon requires some babying, but the flavor is outstanding and the tender flesh is luxurious. Melons should be elevated off the ground to keep them dry. Protect from sun scald with leaves, a cloth, etc. over the melon to shade it. If watered too much before they ripen, they may split, especially in hot weather. They will also split if left on the vine too long. Check daily when the fruits are nearing ripeness. They are best picked as soon as the blossom end softens. The melons will not slip off the vine at this stage unless they have been over-watered. They can be kept on the counter for a day or two if picked a little too early. Don't wait for them to turn yellow. Some hybrid Crenshaws are completely yellow when ripe, but this is not true of the original Crenshaw. The green skin typically lightens and shows some yellow when ripe. Some years, my plants have succumbed to disease before the melons ripened. I think it's soil disease rather than a leaf disease.
