90 days. Football shaped fruit have wonderfully fragrant, sweet orange flesh that has a delicate flavor. This heirloom from the northwest predates 1900.

What are the pros? Sweet tasting, good producer

What are the cons? Thin flesh, could be sweeter

Review:

Grew these in 2013 next to Delicious 51. These were good producers - we had 3 hills and got 11 melons. Four were in the 10 lb. range. The downsides were that the seed cavity in each melon was enormous and the flesh was thin so they were a lot of work to cut up. They were very sweet but we're still looking for a sweeter melon. The picture is pretty accurate - if you let them ripen well they turn yellow on the outside. We grew them in excellent soil so we didn't have any pest or disease problems, and believe me, we've had a lot in our garden.

What are the pros? drought tolerant

What are the cons? difficult to determine ripenes

Review:

We planted four types of heirloom melons (all ordered from Baker Creek). We began the season in severe drought and then rec'd great rains in July and August. The melons got off to a slow start but finally in mid-Sept. began to ripen. The pear melon turned out to be the only edible melon we harvested. All the others rotted from the inside out before showing any signs of being ready to pick. We have never experienced this before (could be attributed to being wetter than usual). The pear melon, however, did not turn the yellowish color in the picture. We harvested them totally green before our first freeze hoping they might ripen a little more inside. Imagine our surprise when cutting into them and they were beautifully ripe and luscious. Will plant these again. They did well in our desert climate.

What are the pros? Complex but delicate flavour

What are the cons? Too little flesh, Sunburns

Review:

I loved the flavour but the fruits have a thin layer of flesh and too large seed cavity. I think the flavour will be enough for me to plant it again next year. The plants weren't very productive but that was probably the fault of the terrible summer we had. The main problem I had was that the fruit is prone to sunburn and I had to cover them all with cardboard.
