90 days. This unusual melon came to the US with Greek immigrants in the early 20th century, who settled in Utah to work mining jobs there. Slightly oblong, netted fruits vary quite a bit in size, attaining 10 lbs in really good conditions. The orange flesh is very sweet. Ripe fruits keep fairly well.

Review:

Fairly easy to grow, 3 to 10 lbs football shaped melon. Kind of a below average musky cantaloupe flavor.

What are the pros? Very sweet, productive

What are the cons? None

Review:

I was surprised at the early ripening considering the large size of some of the fruit. The summer this year was terribly hot and dry but these produced an average of 6 fruits each and would have grown more in a better season. The plants are tough and the fruits very sweet but slightly fibrous. They turn mostly yellow when ripe and slip with a tug. I didn't find them particularly well keeping.
