Minnesota Midget Melon

This very small, very early heirloom was introduced in Minnesota in 1948. Measuring just 4inches across, they have sweet, orange flesh and are perfect miniature versions of the "Classic Muskmelon". Compact, 3-4-foot vines produce good yields. I fondly remember these as the only melons our family could get to ripen in Charlo, Montana, about 20 years ago.

What are the pros? Productive, easy to grow

What are the cons? none that I can think of

Review:

Never wrote an online review before even though I've read thousands of them. Felt compelled to review these because they were such a delight of the garden this year. Second year growing melons, these were easy and productive. Taste is excellent, not the best I've grown for taste but for the ease and productivity I was thrilled. Taste is still excellent, a store bought melon will never compete. Direct sown late (June) and ripened in 1st-2nd week of September. More than our family could eat!

What are the pros? Sweet, Great Producer

What are the cons? none

Review:

These are my favorite melons. Not the large ones you get in the store. These ones are small and almost bite sized. I have grown them two years now. They are a great producer. I got so many melons I couldn't eat them all! They also keep for a while in the fridge and on the counter. I Grew them in Alberta Canada. Just east of Edmonton!

What are the pros? Very prolific and easy to grow

What are the cons? Went bad pretty quickly

Review:

We waited until they were almost off the vine before picking. The flavor was wonderful, but they go bad pretty fast at that point. We got more melon than we could give away. We did have a late spring this year. Direct sown, sprout quickly.

What are the pros? Fast & easy growing, delicious

What are the cons? None!

Review:

I love this melon! I have never successfully grew melons but this one has done well. When picked ripe they are incredible and you can smell the fragrance on the outside of the melon. They grow fast, mature fast and are a perfect melon for individuals. My kids love taking these in their lunch (it also gives them something to "wow" their classmates with). We picked a few too early and they were good but the fully ripe one are incredible!!

What are the pros? Nice, great for a short season

What are the cons? seriously? who could dislike

Review:

First time growing these melons and got two decent melons but from 20 plants I started last may. Tasty, not a sweet as expected. Growing melons in New England is tough on top of that mine were honestly a bit neglected. I'm glad to oh gotten anything at all. I think the trouble was worth it but I hope with a little more effort and a better season next year I see a better crop. Tips: I started mine indoors and transplanted them when I saw the first true leaves. - I didn't have any luck direct seeding them. Be very careful transplanting them too, young stems break really easy. Once established they began flower then the vine was less then 6" long. Female flowers started coming when they were about a foot. Mine didn't get longer then 2 feet. I didn't amend the soil or even mulched it.
