What are the pros? Delicious, Easy to Grow
What are the cons? Takes a while to germinate
My grandmother from Texas told me about this melon right before planting season. I looked for it online and purchased it from Baker Creek. I'm glad I did, too, because I may have never found out about the outstanding varieties they offer. The seeds took a while to germinate, but once they did they took off and began flowering after about 60 days. They were the first plants to grow in my garden, (besides my purple-hull peas, of course) and by far the first plants to produce melons. Sweeter than anything I ever grew, and fun to watch. Very heat resistant, but give it plenty of water. Grows like a cantaloupe.

What are the pros? Amazing flavor
What are the cons? None
These taste amazing. Like, I can't believe I grew anything that tastes this good. Started indoors, planted out in early June, grew on a trellis made with a cattle panel. The melons got heavier than I expected, so they required some support (I tied strips of an old t shirt making a soft sling), so minor in light of the dramatically delicious melons. We we definitely grow these for the rest of eternity. They are that good.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, great taste,
What are the cons? Exploded after rain
These are one of my favorite melons. Easy to grow and heat tolerant. They did sunburn in this year's 100?. A little hard to tell when they are perfectly ripe. Then the weather broke and it rained. My melons started splitting wide open and their flavor turned a little bland.

What are the pros? tasty, disease tolerant
What are the cons? none
My favorite. Good disease tolerance here in Texas. Handles heat like a champ. Does need water. Maybe a gallon every day but this is Texas. Got 5 or 6 melons per plant all at 3 to 4 pounds. Great for organic growing. Last melon to ripen in my garden compared to Oran melon but that just extended my melon eating season. Yes, try this melon out.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, wonderful flavor
This was the first melon I grew in my new garden. I direct sowed 6 seeds and 3 made it to maturity. Each plant produced 5-6 delicious little melons. They didn't mature until September, but were totally worth the wait and garden space to grow!
