Good when ripe
Easy to Grow 4.0
EarlyMaturity 3.5
 

What are the pros? They are good when ripe

What are the cons? Need to stake them like tomato

Review:

I have grown them several times here in Hawaii. I really like the cantaloupe flavor they have when ripe. If you pick them too soon, they are crisp and not very sweet, but they are quite good if you allow them to ripen. Make sure there is some good yellowing between the dark colors, and sometimes you can smell them. If you started them with seed, they can vary in taste. If you find a very good tasting plant, you can take cuttings easily, root them in the shade for a few days in warm weather, and then you will have another plant.

What are the pros? none on the first try

What are the cons? wimpy, weak sprouts

Review:

I couldn't keep the tiny sprouts alive. Probably too cool in the house during late winter when I planted them. I will try again once more this year after the mean temperature climbs a bit and more sunlight is available to keep the seed and soil warmer.

What are the pros? Beautiful plants.

What are the cons? No yield.

Review:

We wanted a fun market offering to go along with our cherentais and heirloom melons. So far all the rest of the melons have gone to market and we're still waiting for the pepinos to blossom. We started the seeds in January, set the plants, which had grown to 4" pots by May, into containers and into the field in May. Beautiful plants, no melons. Will overwinter 1 plant just because we don't accept failure!

Spider mite Magnet
Easy to Grow 4.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Fruit Quickly

What are the cons? Spider mites love them

Review:

I've had my plants from these seeds for two years, I just lost one to a frost as I didn't move them into the greenhouse in time. I've neglected these plants and they keep on growing. At least three times a year though I have to spray or heavily prune with an light organic spray to keep the spider mites under control. Its like all the spider mites in the greenhouse gravitate towards them over the winter. They are very resilient though and always pop back. The remaining ones lower branches have survived a ~10F freeze and is growing back nicely.
