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.

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

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.

Review:

I never was a melon fan until I grew these. If I have the will power to let them slip (disconnect at the stem)on their own they are the most sweet, juicy,tender melon I have ever had. And one is just right for a quick breakfast for 1 person. I am 4 years a new gardener and these were an early success in my 7A zone. Easy to grow and delicious to eat, they have earned a permanent home in my garden every year as have Tess' Landrace (currant) tomatoes (TM156) and Grandpa's Home hot peppers (not currently offered it appears). I couldn't be more pleased.

Review:

Ordered these on a Lark. Wanted an early melon to offset the cravings of waiting for the Bigboys to produce. Man are these GREAT! Serving sized to. We have a 4 year old tomato thief that just loves the size and taste. None of it goes to waste. I am so growing a ton of these for fall!
