What are the pros? Beautiful foliage
What are the cons? No fruits - short season
Last year (2016) I experimented with a few short-season melon varieties. In my climate melons are but a dream, and indeed, by the end of the summer I was forced to wake from that dream. Not all my seeds germinated and once they did the plants struggled to get established. Once they got established though, these Early Silver Line really got going! The plant was happy to climb & was lovely, small yellow flowers grew and I held my breath, hoping I might get some fruits by summers end. But in southwest Washington (and a back yard garden that isn't truly full sun) I just couldn't get these beauties there. So all I can say is, if you live in a cold-ish, short season place, be wary. And good luck!
