What are the pros? TASTE!!
What are the cons? Takes up a great deal of space
We grew this a couple of years ago when we had a very dry hot year. Day after day of triple digits killed a couple of the other watermelons I tried but Missouri Heirloom thrived. I've never been especially successful growing watermelons (except for Sugar Baby) but Missouri Heirloom were very strong plants we grew without pest problems.
Huge melons with deliciously sweet yellow-orange flesh were wonderful. The vines do run rampant so give this baby plenty of room. I should also note we watered daily during the worst of the heat and drought.
