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.

I grew this melon in my first garden( my garden is far north). No one thuoght I should try and grow a melon up here but it matured in time, produced about 20 fruits per hill, and tasted great. Me and my family are enjoying them.

Review:

I try to live a self sufficient life, so grow several melons for fruit. These are a favorite. The growing season here is short and the weather is extreme, yet these plants keep growing whether it is really hot, hailing, heavy rain or 60mph winds. They are planted in 25 gallon tubs and need little care other than a little fertilizer (rabbit) and some water. The melons don't last to maturity here because I pick them too early, but they do grow quickly. I pick them where they are a single serving size. Very tasty and juicy, with a sweet aroma.

Review:

I wish I had planted more of these little gems! I put them in big containers, and put tomato cages over them to climb on. They are about the size of softballs -- fragrant, tender, juicy little wonders! I will always plant some of these. My goodness, were they easy to grow, very little care, and what a pay-off!

Review:

For many years we have been on the quest for a melon that would mature in our shorter summers and produce more than one or two melon. In addition to a shorter summer, our garden spot only gets sun for 2/3 of the day. Usually a majority of our melons never mature before frost. We LOVE this melon! WE have it trellised and it is a GREAT producer. I like that when the melons are ripe they just separate right from the vine. Some other melons I've had will crack, then the ants get to them and I never get to enjoy them... So far we have gotten 5 melons and there are LOTS more coming. It has a nice cantelope-like flavor and very sweet. Finally! WE will grow this for many more years.

Review:

We plant MN Midget every year here in Colorado. It is the only melon that always produces for us. Even in summers that are damp and in the 80s, we get MN Midget harvest. But when we get very hot, very dry summers this becomes one of the gems of the melon patch - fabulously sweet. Short vines, prolific yields that slip when ripe. To my thinking, a melon patch isn't complete with Minnesota Midgets!
