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? vigorous and deep green vines.

What are the cons? none

Review:

Very good growth on these and seem to like it in our alkaline soil and dry air conditions. Also the tiny type of bees love the flowers and the pollination for heavy fruit set was amazing. Good wild bird-game bird attractant as they enjoyed decimating my crop!

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Bland

Review:

These were sent free with my order, which was great because we live trying new plants! But these were a little disappointing. While they were easy to grow, the flavor for us was pretty bland. Though we aren't huge fans of honeydew, which is what it reminded me of. The chickens loved them!

Kids Loved These

What are the pros? Prolific, sweet, crisp, small

What are the cons? Vines go crazy

Review:

I planted these in my raised garden bed where I grow my cooking seasoning. Quite frankly I forgot I put the seeds in there. But these grew like crazy, I probably got 30 melons off 4 or 5 vines. The fruit has to turn a deep gold to be sweet. The taste is like a sweet super crisp honeydew. They are just big enough for one. There is virtually no rind but the skin is kind of hard. The kids loved them and took the melons in their lunches to summer camp. When we had cook outs they were a huge hit cut into crisp cubes and added to jello. The vines are super aggressive, but if you have the space you won't be disappointed. I let one vine run at will and probably got 10 melons off that one. I probably would have gotten more but my husband "accidentally" weed wacked it. I will definitely plant these again.

What are the pros? easy to grow

What are the cons? ripens slowly

Review:

First, thanks Baker Creek for sending free packets of interesting varieties. I tried this free seed out and my results were mixed. If the fruits were left to fully ripen, they tasted crisp and sweet. However, if you pick them too early (even after they turn dark gold) they are not very sweet. This was bad year at our place for wasps so I had a tough time keeping my melons in the field when they neared ripening.

What are the pros? The were fun easy to grow

What are the cons? Too hard, funny tasste

Review:

I picked them when the vines dried up and in my mind they were still not ripe. Some split. They were very hard ...what did I do wrong. I expected to be able to be easier to chew. They had the texture of a raw carrot. The were not very flavorful. I thought they should be healthy, so I made smoothies and added a tube of crystal lemonade. Made a passable drink.
