Tigger Melon

90 days.The most amazing looking melon we have grown. The fruit are vibrant yellow with brilliant fire-red, zigzag stripes (a few fruit may be solid yellow), simply beautiful! They are also the most fragrant melons we have tried, with a rich, sweet, intoxicating aroma that will fill a room. The white flesh gets sweeter in dry climates, mild tasting. Small in size, the fruits weigh up to 1 lb. The vigorous plants yield heavily, even in dry conditions. This heirloom came from an Armenian market located in a mountain valley.

What are the pros? Pretty

What are the cons? low germination and odor

Review:

The germination rate on these were poor but once you get them going they are easy to grow. I tested these out in native soil, in raised bed garden soil, and in homemade compost. The ones in the compost by far did the best. They tolerated our hot summer (105 F average temp) here in TX and 'survived' but did not grow the best until it cooled down to below 98 F, then the plants took off nicely. I didn't water a lot but when I did water I did a good deep watering. The fruits that grew in compost were larger then any I've seen in pictures on the internet. They were flavorful, crisp, but not very sweet. Just sweet enough. It honestly tasted just like a cantaloupe to me....delicious with a nice salty cheese paired together. They are very pretty once ripe. At first smell, they smell good and very aromatic. But the smell becomes overwhelming. I had a few ripe ones on my counter and when you walked into the house it had a strong smell that was traced to the melons.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, smells great

What are the cons? Bland, mushy

Review:

The good: They produce amazingly well, with very little maintenance. The fruits slip off when they are ready, so there is no guesswork like with other melons. They grow so well, the last 2 years I've had volunteers sprout up in my lawn and pasture where we threw the seeds out to the goats. And we've gotten plenty of fruit from the volunteer vines as well, even without any watering and very little rainfall. Hardy little suckers! I'm sure they would be excellent sellers at a farmer's market due to their unique appearance and amazing smell, but I would feel guilty about selling them without disclosing their underwhelming flavor and texture. The bad: The taste isn't great.Sugar helps a little, or mixing with other fruits/smoothies. The texture is slightly mushy. I'm considering trying to make a zucchini type bread out of them We will be growing them again, but not in the garden. I'm lining our fences with the seeds, so they can grow. They make for good photos and conversation!

What are the pros? Survives heat and drought

What are the cons? none

Review:

This plant survived heat, drought and a squirrel attack as a seedling. It sits in my front yard with 100 Fresno heat, watered 1-2 times a week. So far it has given me 8 beautiful fruit that smell wonderful, with mores till on the vine. It tastes like a mild cantaloupe but you have to let the melon ripen well before you eat it or else it is bland. If you wait though... very delicious. I love it as a desert or snack and my chickens love the innards. It was the only melon I had that survived the drought, so I would highly recommend it for dry areas. Will be planting it again next year for sure.
