Thai Golden Round Melon

         
 
10 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
The plants are extremely productive, and did well here in our climate. The big 6-lb fruit look like glowing orange pumpkins. One of the most unusual and attractive melons we've ever grown. The green flesh is sweet and melting, and has a very unique tropical taste, somewhat un-melonlike in flavor. This variety adds a whole new category of melons to the US and is sure to be a favorite of gardeners who love diversity.

What are the pros? Color, Size and Aroma

What are the cons? Bland uneventful taste

Review:

After a couple of disappointing attempts I've finally achieved success in growing the Thai Golden Round this year; and to be honest, I am completely underwhelmed by it's bland flavor. The melon is beautiful; and the texture of the fruit is firm with a slight creaminess. However, due to it's lack of flavor I am perplexed as to how I will use the fruit with so many on the vine. The irony is I was on my last seeds for this variety; and now I have plenty of seeds, but I doubt I will grow this again. Although I was open to the possibilities of the fruit, my family did not like the texture or it's lack of flavor.

Great in melon soup
Easy to Grow 3.5
EarlyMaturity 3.5
 

What are the pros? Aromatic, very sweet, juicy

What are the cons? Texture

Review:

Yes, the texture is a little odd (spongy even, if too ripe), but these melons make the sweetest and most beautifully colored melon-mint-lime soup. They also ripened and produced the best of the melons I planted in the cooler summers on the CA coast (and the salt air).

What are the pros? Easy to grow, bright color

What are the cons? texture

Review:

These melons were easy to grow and were the first variety to ripen. The bright orange color makes them easy to spot in the garden. They have a rich melon scent that I can smell as I walk in the garden on a hot day. The color when cut open makes these the most beautiful melon I've seen. However, when it gets down to the real purpose for growing melons, this variety fell short. They taste sweet, but I disliked the texture so much that I have not been able to finish even half a melon. The texture is somewhat like grainy custard. Since they grew so well, I may save some seed to grow if I have extra room next year, but this is only because my pigs loved them.

What are the pros? prolific

What are the cons? mushy

Review:

The thai golden melons were very prolific in central california. We planted 3 vines and got over 40 melons. They smell wonderful and have a beautiful orange flesh. Tasty but a bit mushy in texture. Very fun to grow but I prefer other melons in taste.

great in the right environment
Easy to Grow 1.5
EarlyMaturity 3.5
 

What are the pros? tropical

What are the cons? difficult to grow in USA

Review:

To best understand how to grow this fruit one must first understand the natural habitat of this fruit. It is from Thailand, a tropical environment and tastes absolutely wonderful when grown under tropical conditions. Hot, dry conditions do not allow the fruit to appropriately mature. These have a very unique taste, but unfortunately grown under the wrong conditions they will not yield the wonderful qualities found in the fruits grown natively.
