75 days. Beautiful ornamental fruit are yellow with deep orange stripes and only 2-3 inches long! They are grown for their wonderful fragrance! These melons were very popular in Victorian gardens and have been our most requested melon. Bland flavor.

Review:

I disagree with your assessment of the edibility of the Plum Granny. I am seventy (70) years old and have eaten Plum Grannys all my life. True, they don't have much of a taste; textured similar to a soft honeydew melon, but, they are certainly edible. My mother raised Plum Grannys back in the late '40's and '50's, as did many other families in this area of eastern Kentucky. I have some in my garden this year. I do enjoy your website.

Review:

In the fall of the year during cotton picking time, we woull find a watermelon, muskmellon or a plum granny growing. We knew they were ripe when they turned yellow -when ready to pick. Ripe ones did have a fruity sweet taste somewhat like cucumber. we ate them like cucumber with salt. Sometimes we would eat the yellow skin and the fruit center but, never when it was green. It was very bitter when it was green.

Review:

I grew one vine in a 5 gallon bucket. The vine was only a couple feet long and has produced 6 fruit, 2 which have been ripe so far. After the first one ripened and barely had any smell, i thought maybe I had been watering it too much. For the next week or so, I watered it just barely enough to keep it alive (this is the desert, after all). The second one ripened and doesn't seem to have much smell either. When i really sniff it, it smells like I just cut a ripe melon open.I cut one of them in half, scooped out the seeds and ate the flesh. It was like a bland honeydew. Not unpleasant at all, but just not much flavor. Overall, I thought it was pretty disappointing. Will not be growing these again unless I find a way to preserve the magnificent skin. Perhaps I could press it like a flower?

Review:

These Plum Granny (Queen Anne) Melons are small and I like that you can eat the whole thing because melons are best fresh. Being a small melon, the vines are also small and don't sprawl all over. You do have room to grow this fragrant, mild flavored fruit. There was a low germination rate. But how many melons do you need?
