A favorite in our Vegan Restaurant. Here's a really different little melon! Tart little fruits are about softball sized or slightly smaller, weighing to about 6 ounces. Smooth, occasionally netted bright yellow-orange skin contains the white flesh. The fruit is fragrant, tangy and moderately sweet. Original seed was preserved by W.R. Lorence, whose Minnesota grandmother, a century ago, made pies from a combination of this melon and apples. Our cooks turn these into incredible pies, crisps and cakes. Enjoy wonderful melon flavor in your summer baking and preserves!

What are the pros? Flavorful and cute.

What are the cons? Vines died off early.

Review:

Eager to try the melon pie recipe in the catalog, we grew these and sure enough, they made great pie! Each fruit make just enough for one pie. The flavor is pleasantly melony. The vines weren't invasive and it took a while before the plants developed both male and female flowers. I'll definatly grow these again.
