What are the cons? None
Gorgeous bright gold melon with amazing flavor -- sweet, rich, perfumed. People swoon over this one.
It's a little tricky to tell when it's ripe because it doesn't slip from the vine. What I watch for is the skin turning a deeper and deeper gold, then starting to show a few white streaks. While it doesn't slip from the vine, when it's ripe it will generally separate better than when it's immature, but that isn't a sure thing. I've had overripe ones that have stubbornly clung to the vine.
It takes a couple more weeks than some other melons, but is worth it. Definitely on my must grow every year list.
