What are the pros? Cute, compact, shortish season
What are the cons? Low production
We grew this melon in summer 2014, zone 6a, via SFG (raised bed). **It was an unusually cool summer, so take my review with a grain of salt.**
Very compact, cute, rather poor production (approx 1 melon per plant - but again, it was a very cool summer), okay taste. Kept pretty well in the fridge.
We planted 4 melon plants at 1 per square foot (because they are so small), trellising 2 plants on the same trellises we use for tomatoes, and the other two plants were not trellised but were allowed to sprawl onto the pavement next to the raised bed. These two ended up with very bad mildew while the two trellised plants did not get even a speck of it. I would highly recommend trellising this variety based on that. Also, they are very easily knocked off as they start maturing, so make sure they are not near a heavily trafficked area, or make sure to take some protective measure.
I will be trying these melons again this year and will report back.
