Golden Crispy Melon

Commercial variety that was discontinued in the early 1980's. Small, oblong to pear-shaped fruits weigh about a half-pound. Smooth golden skin enclose incredibly sweet, uniquely aromatic white flesh. We are excited to be able to re-introduce this worthwhile variety that was almost lost.

What are the pros? No pests, no disease

What are the cons? No flavor, bland!

Review:

I received the seeds for free from Baker Creek so I planted 2 plants. They matured early, were extremely prolific, cute color and size, and pest/disease free! But, they tasted awful, did not like the texture so I've given them to the deer! What a waste because I really wanted to like them.

Review:

I like this melon. I got the seeds for free and planted them in my greenhouse after all my winter greens were harvested. I put 3 seeds on a mound and after all three seeds sprouted I put a tall tomato cage over them. They grew up the cage and have now taken over the entire left side of my 10X12 greenhouse, grown up on the support struts and along the wire of solar lights I have strung. They would have taken up the entire greenhouse if I didn't keep chopping off the vines growing across the center path. I just harvested the first one and although it was small we really liked the flavor. Crisp and juicy with a flavor like Honeydew, which we love. The most amazing thing though is that there is no rind. I just peeled the skin off with a potato peeler and sliced up the melon. I have another ~10 fruits in varying stages of ripening, some a better size. I don't know if that's a good harvest but I wasn't really expecting much of anything. I will definitely give this one more room next year.

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Not incredibly sweet

Review:

I got this melon as a free seed last year and planted it this year. The vines are very productive and I have probably got about 10 melons on one plant. I planted transplants in the beginning of the summer (first week of June) and have just picked my first melon after seeing that the tendril closest to it had shriveled up. The fruit itself is somewhat sweet. It was very reminiscent of the Korean golden melon, except way less sweet. The fruit, although ripe (??), was still slightly green looking. Maybe that's why it wasn't incredibly sweet. I think I will leave the next one on the vine until the tendril shrivels up and falls off before harvesting. Very prolific and easy to grow and wasn't plagued by vine borers like my squash were. Seems very healthy without any sign of blight or disease like my tomatoes are showing. Probably will not plant again though.

What are the pros? Fast and sweet

What are the cons? Split all open

Review:

Like many others here I received the seeds for this melon as free gift along my order. Many thanks to Baker Creek! The plant was the first, out of several melon varieties I grow this year, to produce fruit. They grew quickly and ripened early August. Unfortunately the last big rain made them all split open all around the rind. This was an entry path for slugs that ate all but one before I came to harvest them. That melon was very sweet, crispy and had a good melon taste. Both me and my partner liked it a lot. I think we will grow it again. The early maturity pared with the good taste make up for the splitting.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, good producer

What are the cons? Taste and smell

Review:

I received these as the free gift with my order. It's my first try at growing melons. I planted in a mound enriched with compost and granulated dry molasses. The vines grew quickly and it fruited easily. No bugs, no diseases. I've harvested about 8 cute little yellow melons. They remind me of red delicious apples: lightly flavored, bland and mealy. Maybe I did something wrong in my growing or fertilizing, or they didn't like the sudden heat wave or I picked them too late? My kids are tougher critics: they've decided that the term "uniquely aromatic" used in the description is code for "smells like hot garbage". Last night, I put the bucket of melons in the pantry, so when the kids opened the door to get cereal, the concentrated smell rolled over them. The melons are now in a bucket on the porch with a sign "free melons - organic" - maybe the UPS man has a more refined palate than my family.
