What are the pros? Great flavor.-like bubble gum
What are the cons? none
I grew this in the sandy soil of Joshua, Texas. I grew it up a trellis, cause the rats ate my cantaloupes a few years ago. Perfect. I picked the melons when they were yellowing. They are very sweet, and have a sweet,bubble gum after taste that lingers in your mouth for a while. Plant has not been affected by disease so far. We've had a very wet summer with lots of rain and no splitting of the melons. This is going to be my go-to melon from now on.

What are the pros? Taste, beauty
What are the cons? Aphids delight!
Very early melon for us. We just had our first melon and it's June 9th. I took everyone's advice about it being too ripe once it slipped. It was a perfect tasting sweet melon with excellent texture. The only complaint is the aphids love this melon as much as I do!

What are the pros? Easy to grow
What are the cons? None
I grew these for the first time on the plains of Colorado. Everyone loves them!! They are so sweet.
They do split easily and by the time they slip off the vine they are too ripe. I will definitely grow these again!

What are the pros? early, superb flavour
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.
