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:

{Soft like a plum and wrinkly like a granny!} --That's when you eat them. And the perfume is so ~sweet and promising~ that even the scent alone is valuable for filling your lungs with! Breathe deeply and think of anything beautiful, it just goes well together. You'll see what I mean. I really like the size of these little babies too, makes it reliably fun and easy for even the children to manage. And considering that muskmelon seeds are edible (you gently roast them I recently learned), I'm betting these seeds are too...I'll be researching that soon. I plan on growing these again next season, and the next, selecting each time to capture that special sweetness/flavor. And I really like their sometimes-lemony-edge, and I can't help but think about it that its just got to be nutritious for my body in some beneficial way. Their flavor hints at 3 things: cantaloupe, mild-lemon, and a honeydew melon...But it is itself unique and definitely worthy to be included in our family of foods.

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?
