110 days. Oval, 8-inch long fruit with skin mottled green and yellow, somewhat like a toad's skin. Sweet, white flesh has a very good taste; one of the earlier maturing winter melons, but still rather late. Very rare, from Spain.

Review:

This is the only melon we have ever had success with - and we didn't even order this variety :) I am not ever complaining, and I will purchase this on purpose next time! It does take a long time, but a single vine produced 4 large melons, each over 5 pounds. We harvested when they began to turn yellow. The first day, they were tasty but not that sweet, but after refrigerating the other half overnight, they were completely sweet and perfect. It's also worth noting, even after knowing about the "sweeter the next day" factor, we still couldn't wait to start eating them, the flavor is very good.

Review:

We grew 15 melon types in 5 gallon containers last summer. We ran out of warm days, so this one did not make it to maturity. But, we tasted it at 75 days and 89 days and discovered the unripe fruit tastes like a sweet cucumber! There were quite a few who loved this flavor at my husband's work and happily took the unripe melons off of our hands. It took 29 days from the time the vine sprouted for it to flower. For those who might want to start early indoors, at 27 days from sprouting, the vine measured 32 inches long. Our melons grew as a trio. The one I picked at 75 days from sprouting (quite a bit early, it turns out) weighed 1 pound, 14 ounces, so these may be quite large at maturity. Unfortunately, I forgot to weigh the other two before they were cut up and given away as "sweet cucumbers". We are going to try growing this again...and start earlier this time. As a side note, this was one of two melon vines that aborted the fruit it initially set. So, be patient with this vine.

What are the pros? Grew great when others didn't

What are the cons? takes long time to mature

Review:

We grew this melon by accident but were pleased with the mix up. We planted Ananas melon seed and these are what we got in the end. They taste great and did very well even in our extremely hot and dry weather. They had some shade in the late afternoon but grew up the stalks of our chocolate cherry tomatoes.

Review:

This may be the best melon I have ever grown. The vines are large and vigorous, and the melons are sweet with a white flesh. They are excellent keepers. I picked the last of them about 6 weeks ago and set them on my porch just before first frost. I am still eating melons at Christmas time! Most of them are keeping just fine, and the flavor and texture is still very good. Give this one lots of room to grow. They even crowded out my watermelons with large strong vines.
