What are the pros? Nice, great for a short season
What are the cons? seriously? who could dislike
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.
