What are the pros? early, superb flavour
What are the cons? none
This was my first attempt at growing melons. Seeds were germinated in February, and planted out in a polytunnel early June. We have just eaten our first PGdR: as expected it was fragrant, juicy and sweet with complex, almost savoury flavours. We have had a good summer for the south of England so it was probably a good year for melons. The charentais I grew alongside has yet to ripen. I anticipate the yield from the PGdR under my growing conditions to be only 1-2 per plant, each fruit weighing around 600-700g: not prolific but more than enough for our own consumption. This has been an encouraging experience so I would definitely grow PGdR again next year.
