90 days. A very rare heirloom from Kansas; the vines are vigorous and the yield is great; oval-shaped, ridged and netted fruit; the flesh is orange and has exceptional flavor; very delicious! A very dependable variety; fruit weigh around 4 lbs. One of our most endangered varieties and also one of the best. Perfect for farmers' markets.

What are the pros? germination was excellent
What are the cons? the end of the growing season
This melon was surprising. I planted a great deal of melons in what happened to be a great year for melons. The Kansas melon was the first to ripen and very prolific through the melon season. Love the full rich cantaloupe flavor. Will definitely purchase again.

What are the pros? Easy to grow
What are the cons? once it ripens, pick quick
Love this melon. Fun to sell at the markets in Kansas. So much better than any cantaloupe I've ever had. One of our favorite things to grow and eat.

I grew this melon in south central Kansas, this season (2012). I have harvested a majority of the melons I expect to get from this variety, and have been pleased with the fruit. Germination was excellent, I had over 90% germination. Pollination on this variety was also excellent. If I had taken a bit more care with these melons, I am confident I would have gotten at least 4 melons per vine. Flavor wise, this melon is subtle, but delicious. Mine were not particularly sweet, but too much sweetness in this variety would have overshadowed the complexity in flavor. Overall I would give it a 9 out of 10 for an heirloom muskmelon.

I grew this melon first time growing melons. The yield was plentiful, very tasty and the average size was over 6 pounds. I'm growing it again this year.
