What are the pros? An honest heirloom

What are the cons? PMR is sweeter

Review:

For MomsintheGarden, 51 stands for 1951 - the year it was released to the public, not days to maturity. Delicious 51 was developed to be resistant to fusarium race 2. It's not the sweetest. PMR Delicious 51 is much sweeter and is Powdery Mildew Resistant.

What are the pros? none

What are the cons? Late, not sweet

Review:

Grew at the same time in the same area as Pear Melon, and this produced fewer melons that weren't as sweet. They took much longer than expected (the 51 means 51 days). Wouldn't grow these again.

Review:

We were first told about Delicious 51 from a Kansas farmer who said this was always their best melon. It's on the higher end of the maturity date for Colorado however it thrives when we have very warm/hot type summers even tho our nights are cool. Very prolific, extremely sweet and huge melons. In the right conditions, it's one of the best you can grow!

These melons grew really well, but the taste isnt good, they are not sweet at all, our tomatoes we grew are a whole lot sweeter than this melon.

Review:

This is our 3rd year to order from Bakers. It is also our 3rd year for the Delicious 51. We will always have this melon in our garden. It is a producer in North Texas, and doesn't seem to mind our black clay soil.....always a plus.
