What are the pros? flavor, productivity, earlines
What are the cons? cracks
These are my new favorite watermelon. They are pretty and absolutely delicious. Very productive. Just be careful to never set them down hard from even a few inches in the air or they will crack.

What are the pros? Hardiness & Flavor
What are the cons? None
I am located in South Dakota on the prairie and planted these Orangeglo seeds in 25 gallon tubs. Five seeds per tub with a little rabbit/goat manure for fertilizer. I was impressed with how hardy these plants were, surviving through 60mph windstorms, hail and hard rain. Each vine gave me 2-3 melons. They are still growing but I also eat them while they are small, or puree them and make watermelon popcicles. Absolutely delicious warm from the garden or chilled. One of my very favorites. Very juicy. You can't help but smile when you eat them. They're that tasty!

What are the pros? So tasty, beautiful flesh
This is a melon that takes patience to grow but is well worth the wait. We were hoping for some to ripen in August but ended up waiting until the middle of September. A real dull "thump" seems to be the sign of being ripe. Will grow again next year.

What are the pros? Tastes amazing
What are the cons? They were prefect
Our first time growing melons, we planted five different types this was by far the best. They were fairly prolific, the local wildlife ate their fair share but we still had plenty. The flesh was tender, juicy and sweet.

What are the pros? Prolific once started
What are the cons? none
I'm in zone 8b @ 2600 ft elev. This watermelon is terrific. Ripe only when the bottom has alot of yellow on it. Once you get the ripening down pat, you have many moments of fine eating ahead of you. Sweet and juicy. One of the best I've raised. Two plants gave me 14 melons. Dynamite. You won't be disappointed. Baker Creek gave me a way to keep a smile on my wifes face. She loves the melons from Baker Creek.
