What are the pros? Excellent flavor, easy to grow

What are the cons? None

Review:

I've never found a melon that was more consistent in producing huge, excellent tasting fruit. Mine are massive this year and just walking by the row, I can smell when one is ready. Vines are now putting on second fruits and I've started more seeds for hopefully a fall harvest as well. I can't enough of Hale's Best.

What are the pros? How cantaloupe should taste

What are the cons? nothing

Review:

I've grown this melon many years. It is always a hit. It is sweet and juicy without being overly sweet and doesn't require much effort. I've tried lots of other melons, but this is one my family and I always enjoy. If you like a good sweet old time cantaloupe this one won't dissappoint

What are the pros? Easy to grow, taste wonderful!

What are the cons? None

Review:

This was my first time ever trying to grow cantaloupe. I planted 4 seeds directly in the side of a bale of straw in my straw bale garden. I ended up with 3 vigorous vines - they seem to like the straw bales just fine! They grew from a bale that had onions in the top. I just picked and nervously sliced my first melon today. I'm VERY picky about my cantaloupe, and I am very please to report that it tastes perfect! It has the perfect amount of sweet with beautiful color and texture. Had I known it was this easy, I would have been growing my own for years. Highly recommended melons!!

What are the pros? Sweetest Melon Yet

What are the cons? None

Review:

This year I planted Hale's Best along with Jenny Lind and Petit Gris de Rennes. So far we have harvested Hale's Best and Jenny Lind. The Hale's Best is amazing! It is the sweetest melon I have ever tasted. It is super smooth with a wonderful taste as well, it is not musky at all. This melon will be planted again next year!

What are the pros? East to grow

What are the cons? Not too sweet

Review:

I grew three plants and got 10 good size melons! I grew in part soil part compost, and watered with compost tea. I would definitely grow this variety again, but I have tasted sweeter muskmelon, I think sweetness does come from the brix and how much water it gets during ripening though (don't overwater during ripening).
