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? Was able to get melons

What are the cons? flavorfull, but not sweet.

Review:

My entire family is cursed when it comes to growing melons. These, however, actually actually produced. They resisted mildew better than most until the weather started to turn. The melons, were not very sweet but have a lot of melon taste.

What are the pros? Hearty plants, grew well

What are the cons? Small melons

Review:

I planted my seeds directly into my 454 cu ft planter. I grew 3 plants that went everywhere.Good thing my cool crops had finished growing.They got morning sun and less afternoon direct sun. I had no problem with bugs. The leaves were hearty and once got wilt from the rains which neem oil spray nipped the problem. My first cantaloupe was 6 inches across and triangularis. An aberrant giant. Tasted good. After that it produced bocci ball size melons. I fertilzed them weekly with an organic fertilzer to keep calcium and magnesium in soil as it was container grown.

What are the pros? grows well, resistant, scent

What are the cons? short ripe period, not sweet

Review:

This melon grew like gangbusters. It has been resistant to bugs, drought, and flood. It has put on tons of melons. The melons, however, leave much to be desired. We've determined that each melon is ripe for approximately one hour before it melts into mush. They sometimes crack before being ripe. When we do catch them at peak perfect ripeness, they don't taste like much. This is not a sweet variety. They smell amazing, however, super floral melony goodness scent. I just wished they tasted like they smell.

What are the pros? Easy to grow-Early ripening

What are the cons? None

Review:

Really wonderful eating, so sweet! Easy to grow and productive. But they are small...here in California ours are nothing like the picture. Ours are all about the size of tennis balls. Have 3 plants growing in a straw bale. picked 10 melons so far with others coming. Next year will plant more and trellis the plants. That seems to boost production on everything. They turn yellow-orange when ripe and literally pop off the vine when touched. They are so cute...would be great for kids to grow and a perfect kid serving portion! I highly recommend them!

What are the pros? Taste, easily grew up trellis

What are the cons? None

Review:

I planted one MN Midget plant last year. It did great here in SW MO. It produced several melons on just one plant. They were small and very tasty. I didn't have any problems with bad bugs or diseases (no chemicals needed) either. Perfect for a small garden like mine. I will plant this variety again this year.
