75 days. Lusicous, small 2-3 lb., green fleshed melons are bursting with sweetness. This was a famous melon at the turn of the 20th century and was introduced by T.W. Woods & Sons of Richmond, Virginia, in 1895. Pick just before the melons freely slip from the vines for best flavor. This is a great variety to add to your home garden or market stand; heavy yields.

What are the pros? Sweet, Honeydew/Cantalope

What are the cons? None

Review:

We are not sure why this is getting a bad rap. We are stuck between a rock and river. I transplanted these on the north side of a pepper plot where they wouldn't get very much sun, planted later in the season (oops) and watered as much as the peppers needed to be watered by hand. These are productive little plants growing maybe 8' long in our case but with melons every 1-2' per plant. Sweet, overly juicy and vine slippers. They taste between a Honeydew and Cantaloupe leaving nothing to be desired. I would most definitely recommend these to friends and family. In fact, I just posted in a local gardening group that these buggers are great for our short season!

What are the pros? Productive, great flavor

What are the cons? None

Review:

Not sure why the negative reviews, but I had great luck with this melon. I picked them ripe (when easily fell off vine) and found them sweet and delicious. Will definitely grow again.

What are the pros? Productive, but...

What are the cons? Mildly sweet, soapy taste

Review:

These melons were quite productive and stood up to powdery mildew as long as I kept them sprayed with neem. Their taste is quite disappointing, though. They were slightly sweet, but I found they had a soapy taste. I've tried several of them now, and am done with them. What's left on the vine is going into the compost.

What are the pros? It is productive

What are the cons? Mature melons are very bland

Review:

The first one I ate was very good and sweet. Green inside. But the next 14 I picked got riper and white inside and lost all their flavor. I think you want to pick this one before it turns ripe looking. They are fragrant but don't taste near as good as they smell.
