What are the pros? Color, flavor, juiciness
What are the cons? Long growing time
This melon was SO GOOD! It tasted exactly like what I think a watermelon should be. 105 days for me and the rinds look exactly like the picture. They were full of juice, the color was a lovely pink and there weren't too many seeds. I love a watermelon that has a nice crunchy texture. We had to cut them up outside because there was just so much water inside! No problems with insects but they did get a little sunburned, didn't affect the flavor at all. Slowest to mature in our garden, but that allowed us to stretch the melon season a little longer since melons tend to disappear around here! 2 melons per vine, about 20 lbs each. The thick rinds kept them from cracking or bursting. Pick watermelons after the first tendril near the melon's stem has withered and the vine turns brown. Don't leave it on the dried-up vine for too long or else they'll get overripe. These are a good variety for down south, they did very well in Arkansas. Probably too many days to mature well up north.
