What are the pros? ripened in upstsate new york
What are the cons? hard to tell when ripe
a very good melon,it tasted like it was described and was very sweet. i started two seeds inside 1 1/2 weeks early and then transplanted them in my 66 sq ft garden with 4 prescott fond blanc melons, 2 big moon pumpkins, tomatoes and peas and each plant ripened 1 melon that was about 7 pounds which tasted great and was super sweet.(i imagine if i gave them proper spacing they would produce multiple 10-15 lb melons). these watermelons ripened around 8/20 and produced a moderate amount of big seeds(which i like because they germinate well and grow faster) but it was hard to tell when they were ripe(tendril did not turn brown and shrivel but it was yellow on the bottom and it did pass the thump test). overall a great melon that ripened in zone 5 and was not bothered by fungus or bugs and was able to compete with other plants and still produce
