What are the pros? Great tasting, fast growing
What are the cons? none
In Hawaii we have lots of problems (slugs, melon flies, rats, too much rain) growing cucurbits, so this melon has been great. This year we planted 6-7 varieties of watermelons and cantaloupes, this by far was the fastest bearing of any. The size is only 1.5-2.5 lbs so far, but some others coming on may be over 3 lbs. The vines only spread 4-5 ft, and at least 2 honeydews/vine are coming off. I may be picking slightly too soon, but because it has been so wet some are cracking on the bottom. Our honeydews may be so small because we are basically growing them on cinder soil and I have not put any compost on this year.
There is very little information regarding this variety available as to its size at ripeness, but it seems to be ripe when it gets a dark yellow as the first commentator noted. No insect pests or mildew have gotten it, but slugs did take a few young plants. Germination rates from Baker Creek for the Golden Honeymoon was 100%. The kids love the taste! We will plant again
