80 days. An early heirloom melon, 3-4 lbs. with thick sweet firm deep-salmon flesh; good yields of quality fruit. An AAS winner for 1933. Good size for an early melon.

What are the pros? High yield, tasty.

What are the cons? Slow germination

Review:

We love these melons and will definitely replant next year. I imagine this will become a regular in our gardens. Once the plant germinated and started vining, it couldn't be stopped. We had a decent yield between 8 plants (20 /- melons harvested). Our garden is on a slight slope and I noticed the plants toward the bottom of the slope getting more water definitely flourished more than the ones toward the top. They were also the first to germinate. The top plants still did very well, even with getting less water. We have hot, dry summers where I live, other than the intermittent thunderstorms. These plants grew well in these conditions. The melons themselves had a tendency to fall off the vine before completely ripe. Some time in the sun solved that problem. If you decide this melon is for you, I hope you enjoy them as much as we have!

What are the pros? I had hopes

What are the cons? Too slow

Review:

Not suitable for my region. Even after starting it in March indoors, and transplanting it at the end of May in garden, all I got was grape size green fruit before the first frost killed it. This plant takes longer than 80 days.

Review:

Tilled up my front yard because it was the only place I that had full sun. These melons grew great, and grew all over the place. Sweetest melon I have had in 20 years. Not like at the store. Just the best.

Review:

First time I planted this melon and what a treat it has been. At first I had a challenge with germination but after awhile the plants took off. Very Sweet, good eating size. I was watering too much to start with and found the melon did better with a little less water. I would like to seen more melons but that may have more to do with my skill level than the melon plant itself.

Very Small Melons
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

What are the pros? Beautiful sweet orange flesh,

What are the cons? 1-2 lb. melons

Review:

Excellent germination rate, I planted 6 seeds, got 6 plants. 4 plants produced only 1 melon each, the other 2 plants produced 2 melons each. All melons were 1-1/2-2 lbs each, much smaller than expected. Good for 2 people to share, but not large enough of a melon for a family. Very flavorful, bright orange flesh.
