What are the pros? ripened in upstsate new york

What are the cons? hard to tell when ripe

Review:

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

Review:

Definately a new ground melon for size and production. A beautiful skin color, the inside explodes with that rich orange flesh that taste as good as it looks. Size ran from 12 to 25 lbs. this year. Was putting on melons when we hit a 3 wk. dry spell. Only melon i eat out of the 10 varieties we grow. Cut one for the customers and the rest dissapeared. I will learn how to spell next year. lol

What are the pros? Prolific

What are the cons? Small side

Review:

I learned that you need to plant the seeds directly into the ground and not in little containers and then plant them. Once they got their mature leaves they just took off! I had to hand pollinate them because bees are disappearing! The watermelons i have are not huge they are small but mighty tasty, plus there is a lot of them so that makes up for size. I had to pick a couple early because they developed blossom end rot. my fault, take the little flowers off the melons once they go brown! Once i started doing that no more blossom end rot. BUT when i picked them and cut into them they were beautiful! they could have matured a little more but because of the rot i wasn't willing to wait. They were sweet and juicy! the big one i do have i will wait till the tendrill dries! this watermelon variety is a keeper in my book! So far the best out of the three i got: Orangeglo, jubilee, and black diamond.

Review:

I have grown Orangeglo's for three years. The first year friends and neighbors were a little stand-offish because if the color, but when they tasted it, they were hooked. In the spring I am regularly asked if I'll be growing them again. The answer is YES. I have found to get a sweet Orangeglo it needs to be hot and dry.
