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.

Review:

I live in a region where it's almost impossible to grow full-sized melons to maturity, so I've started trying to grow some different small-sized ones that take less time to mature. I was really excited to see these plants reach maturity and produce beautiful fruits, but when I harvested the first one and cut it open to try it, the flavor was awful. The smell was quite nice, so I couldn't understand what I was doing wrong. I even made sure to let subsequent ones drop off of the vine on their own so I knew they were fully ripe. Still no flavor. They grew in good dirt amended with compost, so if there's some trick to getting a sweet melon that I'm missing, please let me know.

Review:

Got seeds 2 years ago, and direct-sowed. Seedlings appeared, but failed. This year, I did 2 different things: started seedlings inside until they got to about 6"; then I made a row of well-composted yard waste (about 12" high x 12" wide next to a sturdy trellis), then topped that with a bag of topsoil, allowed that to sit for a few days, and the transplanted the seedlings. Research indicated that mounds of loose dirt were best for melons, so I gave it a shot, and the melons took off. Once established, they trellis easily. As long as they have sufficient water, they require little care. When fully ripe they will fall off the vine on their own. Allow them to do so - the skins are tough enough that they don't bruise easily. Another benefit is that if they get a little over-ripe and slightly soften, the melon is still good, and almost gets to candy-like sweetness. The flavor is mostly honeydew, with a touch of cantaloupe. And for seed-savers, the seeds are abundant. Give these a shot!

Review:

Yuck. Don't judge a melon by it's cover, in this case the cover is fantastic and the melon is a huge letdown.

What are the pros? Cute compact plants

What are the cons? Bland flavor

Review:

I have limited space so I tried to grow these on a trellis. That all worked great, but the melons had almost no flavor. Great for an ornamental plant, but I wanted FOOD.

My family loves these and miss them at the end of the growing season! They smell great and house loads of seeds for saving. They are the perfect size to put in packed lunches.
