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? 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!

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.

Review:

I have planted this variety twice now. Once in the backyard in a square foot garden bed. That planting did great. I had many melons but my dog would pick them two or three days before me and eat the whole thing. Needless to say, I didn't get many that year. The next year, I moved them to the front yard and I got to eat them all. On one plant, I got 26 melons. In July and August, the melons were larger than softballs. I had melons setting and ripening through October. The later melons were only baseball sized in October but were still really sweet. The vines were splayed out on the ground and were max 6 feet long.

Review:

Since this was my first attempt with this melon, and in a new garden - I started some of these indoors and direct seeded the left over seeds. The direct seed performed best. I let them trail down the drainage ditch bank, and had too many-to-count softball sized melons. VERY flavorful and perfect for one person. So many ripened at one time that I made jam from them - an experiment - my husband was skeptical. It was so delicious we made a second batch and it is almost gone before Christmas. Definite keeper!!
