85 days. A popular heirloom developed around 1920 by a Japanese market grower in California. Sweet, smooth orange flesh. A good flavored muskmelon.

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

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).

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Not productive

Review:

I've grown this melon for years and highly recommend only growing them in raised beds or large containers in the desert. I also highly recommend using only drip irrigation or a hose set on low flow to avoid splattering the earth onto the leaves. I stupidly used spray irrigation this year and got a virus that caused wilting and resulted in my only getting two melons from three plants. My fault entirely. Normally, this is a productive and very tasty cantaloupe that is easy to grow, even in the desert. I've been saving the seeds in hopes of developing a cantaloupe that is perfectly adapted to our harsh summers. A note for reviewers. If you include your location it will help others to decide if the plants will do well in their location.

Review:

We planted the seeds in a bad slow Spring. But 2 seeds sprouted and the vines were off were off like gang-busters. We had 7 huge melons. One weighed 7 1/2 lbs. Yummy sweet taste too. This was a great choice for our Colorado climate. We recommend it. We think it needs good hot days and lots of water.
