What are the pros? Ripens quickly, tastes great
What are the cons? Few female flowers
Will not set fruit above 105F. A mild lull in the LV summer meant that I got 2 melons to set the first week
of July. I just picked and ate the first one this morning. The next one will likely be tomorrow morning, tomorrow night at latest. I found my melon to be have a delicate honeydew like flavor. Sweet, but not overly so. Intense melon fragrance. Flesh goes down to just a hair above the rind.
1) Give it 2 epsom salt waterings in the last two weeks before harvest
2) Chill the fruit before serving.
I look forward to next year's crop.
