Incredible little melons from the former Soviet Union. The fruit are a beautiful red, striped with golden yellow and weigh only about ¼ lb! The flesh is pure white and quite sweet. These have a very refreshing taste and are very fragrant. They are perfect for single servings. These little melons are so much fun and great for children's gardens. The vines are very productive all season long. One of the best new varieties we've discovered in the last few years. Try a few of these delicious little melons in your home or market garden.

What are the pros? pretty, grows easily

What are the cons? very little flesh

Review:

Pretty little melon but after color change (and by trial and error) when deemed ripe, they proved to be all seed cavity and very little edible flesh. Flesh was too sweet, too bland. Will not grow again. I have to be very water frugal and so hand watered all summer till the monsoons arrived. These are just not worth the space and water. An interesting experiment, not to be repeated.

What are the pros? Smells great, super cute

What are the cons? Tastes alright

Review:

I was out picking in the garden and I suddenly smelled a delicious tropical aroma and realized my little melons were ripe! Totally adorable, lots of fruit, these would be great in a childrens garden. Very easy to grow , taste between a hineydew and a cantaloupe. I think other people are getting small bland fruit because of lack of water and compost.

What are the pros? They are easy to grow.

What are the cons? Blah taste

Review:

They are easy to grow. Little fruits cover the vines. It's also nice they brighten up when ripe. I have yet to taste a sweet one. To me they taste like musk melon that's under ripe. I will not grow them again. Cute little things though.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, loves the heat

What are the cons? Not very big, crack easily

Review:

These melons were outstanding for creating ground shade and helping to retain water on our land near Phoenix. Temps snapped right to 110 during June in Phoenix this year, and these melons loved it, growing crazy fast, as much as 20 feet over the next three weeks. I got worried when we had a three-day spell at 120 degrees, but these melons put on their biggest growth spurt during that week above 115, putting on as much as six feet radius per plant over that week. They are sweet enough. Epsom salts as they reach maturity really increased the sweetness. Scent like a banana, flavor like a cantaloupe. Water them well at first. Stop watering them after the melons start to gain size, or they will crack. Given their performance through incredible heat conditions, and their ability to weather a total lack of water in these conditions for nearly three weeks while the melons ripened, I would recommend these to anyone in a poor soil desert environment in a heartbeat.

What are the pros? cute

What are the cons? taste, size, vigor,

Review:

The melons that grew for me were only about 2 ounces each. The taste was essentially wet cardboard. Although if I let them sit long enough to be slightly soft to the touch (not squishy, but squeezable) then there was a glimmer of sweetness. Not worth it. Also: smell was more "overripe tomato" rather than some mysterious tropical scent. I will be trying to improve the flavor I think.
