Uzbek Sweetness Melon

An early melon coming from Uzbekistan. The golden skin is nearly smooth, with only a hint of netting, no discernible ribbing; pure white, sugary-sweet flesh. Size runs from about 4 lb to an occasional 10 lb fruit.

What are the pros? Sprout quickly and grow FAST

What are the cons? Can't tell when they are ripe

Review:

We planted 15-20 of these. They spout extremely quickly and grow like weeds. We got a bunch of melons, but never a great tasting one. Can't tell when they are ripe. Ours always had a mixture of green and yellow - not like the picture. I'd leave 'em to ripen for weeks, but they never did turn completely yellow. The few good ones we had, were quite different than any Cantaloupe or Honeydew. Texture was like a golden delicious apple. If they had been sweet, they would have been outstanding. If I were to try growing them again, I would wait and plant these about 3 weeks after my other cantaloupes. That's because they sprout and grow so FAST compared to the others.

What are the pros? Easy grow and sweet fruit

What are the cons? not very productive

Review:

It's a sweet melon and it can grow big without any vine managing. I've harvested 8 so far but I still don't know when is the best time to harvest. Should I wait until it's fragrant or just wait until it turns orange?

What are the pros? vigorous plants

What are the cons? susceptible to disease

Review:

I wanted to try Uzbek Sweetness as a contrast to a typical cantaloup. The plants initially struggled in the colder months, but put on a lot of growth quickly once the weather warmed. One fruit set on each plant by July. However all were showing signs of Downy Mildew. The Uzbek plants seemed more susceptible to this than the Petit Gris growing alongside, and by mid-August, the plants were overwhelmed by disease. The fruit had not fully ripened and tasted like cucumber. Sadly this year, I can only imagine what a fully ripe Uzbek melon would taste like. Perhaps the humidity of a polytunnel was too much for the Uzbek. However it seemed intolerant of lower temperatures so I doubt they would have thrived out in the open. So, not one for the UK unless others have had success?

What are the pros? sweet, floral scent

What are the cons? cucumber beetles love it, too

Review:

We grew 15 melon types in 5 gallon containers last summer. This one was loved by all at home and at my husband's work, even those who had thought they didn't like melons. It had a floral scent when cut open and was very sweet and delicious. Some thought it tasted like a banana. It took 27 days from the time it sprouted for it to flower and 84 days from sprouting to our first ripe melon. For those who might want to start early indoors, at 29 days from sprouting, the vine measured 35 inches long. Our melon took a long time to turn completely orange. It was orange and green and, then, overnight it turned completely orange and slipped. Our melon weighed 2 pounds, 7 ounces. Cucumber beetles left this plant alone after a while...until the first melon ripened. The vine tried to produce more melons, but after that, the cucumber beetles voraciously ate all of the baby melons the plant produced. The cucumber beetles loved this melon vine more than any other in my yard...by far.
