75 days. Beautiful, oval-shaped, yellow fruit weighing 1-2 lbs. with lovely silver stripes. The white flesh is very crisp and sweet. This is a Korean variety that was introduced by Burpee's, and is one of the best. A must for melon enthusiasts and specialty growers alike. Very productive and quite early; a good choice for the north and fun for kids to grow.

Review:

We had an unusually warm summer in the southern Puget Sound area of Western Washington so I don't know if these melons would have matured in our normal summer weather. I grew one vine in a pot that was roughly half the size of a whiskey barrel. I really had to watch the watering as the vine would wilt if I was late with the daily dose of H2O. I harvested roughly 20 melons from that one vine. They were all about 1 pound each. The fruit was crisp, moist and mildly sweet. I was not very impressed with the flavor and I will not grow this variety again. I only tried it because it was such an early maturing variety. My Korean friend said that they used it more like a radish in salads, etc., when she was growing up in South Korea. She was surprised to find that it had any sweetness to it.

Review:

These grew well in Seattle. They taste of pears and the rinds are edible. When ripe, they fall off the vine.

Review:

This is an earlier melon. It sets a lot of fruit from the end of July to September. They are about the size of a large grapefruit, and the flesh is very sweet, especially if you pick it and then put it in the fridge overnight before you eat it. Sometimes, the skin is very thin, so you can eat the skin too, like an apple. My kids LOVE it. Doesn't seem to be too bothered by bugs (but then, in my garden, the beetles are too crazy about the squash to bother the melons). My best plant was located in a corner of the garden that didn't get watered as much as the rest. Probably get at least 20 melons per plant over the course of several weeks.

Review:

First of my six varieties to ripen...by weeks! Continual harvest, lovely 4-5 inch melons. Don't hold that well after harvest. Skins become a little unsightly after four days or so. So eat them or get them to your customers fast. White flesh is best eaten at a crisp state. A bit like a lemon cucumber with a hint of sweetness, dare I say slightly tropical. Different and refreshing with consistent growth/fruiting. Will plant again.

Review:

I wanted to try this melon because I had had some Asian melons in the past which I enjoyed and because last summer was a very difficult year for cucurbits in my garden. Squash bugs just took over and by late August had decimated my squash and had moved over to the melons and cucumbers. I did not harvest one decent melon, by the time they started to ripen, the plants died so this year I decided to go with short season squash and melons only. These melons are small, one melon will make two or three servings, which is fine with me and we picked our first one less than 60 days from planting (I'm in Southeast VA very close to North Carolina with July temps in the high 90's). I have had some issues with cracking but on the whole I am very pleased with the melon. They are not super sweet but tasty; very much like Honey Dew. Definitely recommended.
