What are the pros? The taste & texture!!!
What are the cons? The years without
Just wanted to let everyone know I tried growing this year and it was held back (as was everything else except purple long beans) by the torrential rains we've had. Didn't start fruiting until the constant rain stopped in mid August so they won't mature this year. THAT BEING SAID THIS IS STILL THE BEST WATERMELON I'VE EVER EATEN. Even if you must try for a decade to get it to grow it's sooo worth it!!
I think these would do lovely in a desert environment with irrigation. I agree with the poster who said if you leave them too long they become pithy. I was a nervous wreck when I picked our first one but it happened to be perfect. Watch them and go for it!
