What are the pros? Fungus resistant, great taste
What are the cons? Hard to tell when ripe
I'm admittedly awful at telling when watermelons are ripe, but these baffled me throughout the season. Some were spot on, perfectly ripe and others seemed to take FOREVER. Then I would slice into them and POP! Rotten watermelon all over the kitchen counter. I'm trying again and hoping that I've learned some lessons from last year. They produced throughout the season and competed well with my embarassingly healthy weed patch, and hung on through some fungus problems that killed all my golden midget watermelons early on. They're tasty and beautiful and a great size. The rind is quite thick and it threw me off for a bit when trying to figure out ripeness, but overall a great melon.
