BEST WATERMELON EVER
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.5
 

What are the pros? JUICY, lots of flavor

What are the cons? Animals stole them at night

Review:

This was the best watermelon I have ever tasted. It was sweet juicy and had a slightly peachy flavor or mango flavor. It was so good. I started having troubles with animals stealing. Each night they would take one ripe watermelon. This was their favorite and they left no evidence except once I saw some claw marks on one of the melons. There is no watermelon that even compares. Easy to grow but likes a lot of nutrition. We used cow manure to feed our melons.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, small size

What are the cons? did not like flat taste

Review:

Maybe I should not judge this variety on one melon but the first one I cut was totally flat tasting. The next few tasted much better but I didn't care for the texture so much. I love orange melons but I was disappointed in this one. Maybe I should give it another try.

Really impressive orange melon
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

What are the pros? Great flavor, texture & color

What are the cons? Seems prone to cracking

Review:

I started a land race this year of 14 vines with the Orangeglo melon and 2 others, and this variety produced by far the largest, heaviest melons although they seemed to be fewer. They matured early in contrast with the other 2 varieties I planted. One cracked open in the garden and had to be tossed, but 4 others survived to ripen to maturity. I cut open the first Orangeglo watermelon today after refrigerating for 24 hours and we were really impressed. Very sweet and not too many seeds. Looked just like the one in the picture. It did crack forcefully when I touched a knife to it, but only then. Pieces of rind actually flew into the air. I wouldn't recommend transporting these, except from the garden to the kitchen; they seem brittle. We did have dry spells this year with periods of heavy rain, so one could attribute cracking or exploding to the weather conditions (although we mulched heavily to conserve moisture). Overall a really good melon and I will be saving seeds for next year.

What are the pros? Vigorous plants, juicy fruit

What are the cons? None

Review:

I never thought I could grow watermelon in the course of an English summer, but I harvested my first ever watermelon fruit today (7th August). It was small (750g), the plant having been infested with red spider mite which cause the death of most of the leaves. Nonetheless the fruit was near-ripeness, with a lovely orange-yellow flesh. It was very, very juicy. The flavour was light citrus, and mildly sweet. The fruit would probably have been bigger and had a higher sugar content if it wasn't for the spider-mite. Still, an encouraging result to get a refreshing, juicy watermelon this early in the summer!
