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!

Review:

These were the best watermelon I have ever tasted. They grew big had solid flesh. When you opened so juicy. We did have trouble with a bandit that would come into the yard and steal one watermelon eat night. Did nt leave rind, just took the whole thing. They took no work once planted just water.
