The 3 fruit are the size of a peach, with a yellow rind and bland white flesh. This variety was very popular in Victorian times for making sweet pickles, pies and preserves. They were developed in China and introduced into America in the 1880's. In the Orient this type of melon is pickled.

Review:

I have grown these before and had lost my provider for them. These are easy to grow and Trellis. Grow at the edge of the garden and the wildlife rabbits etc will go for them and leave the rest of the garden alone. Picked while still young and green, if you skin them they have a cuke like taste to them, and make a good dill pickle substitute, or other pickle.They must be skinned. If allowed to ripen they make a great cooked preserve and pickle. The last i canned them we done 2 cases of skinned and deseeded bread and butter pickles out of them that was good. They are not very tasty raw when ripe,but can be cubed small into fruit salads or ambrosia to hide the blandness.Love them will be ordering them from ya'll. I had no problem growing them I fertilized with fish emulsion.

Review:

I received a packet of seeds as a free gift with my order. The seeds did not germinate well, so I ended up with only three plants to set out and none of them grew very well so I pulled them out. I thought I had pulled all three, but late in the season some kind of melon showed up among my winter squash. I waited to see what kind it was, but I just couldn't recognize it. It was one of the vine peach that I had somehow overlooked. Like the other reviewer, I was disappointed that it was rather tasteless fresh. However I found a recipe for cantaloup preserves and used the vine peach melons. Wow! They do make great "peach like" preserves with a vague melon taste in the background. I can see that they would make very tasty sweet or spicy pickles as well. I will be growing them again here in Idaho.

Baker Creek's description is honest, unlike the melon's name

Review:

A lot of sites insist that the melon tastes like a mango or peach. It doesn't. As Baker Creek notes, the melon is bland. Don't think too badly of it for that -- it is, like is said, good used as a yellow-skinned cucumber. But if you try to eat it as a melon, expect to be disappointed.

Review:

With a name like "peach" or "mango" I expected a sweet melon. Not so - at least not in Pacific Northwest. They grew well but tasted terrible raw. Disappointed.
