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? Flavor, size

What are the cons? Hard to tell when ripe

Review:

With our short growing season melons are always a challenge and sometimes do not make it in time before the freeze. We grew this melon along with 11 other melons and it was nearly the last one to ripen, but boy was it worth the wait! Sugar sweet and I'm almost certain it had a hint of vanilla flavor to it! The size was larger then other melons that we grew, around 6-10 pound fruits on average. Even with that size of melon it did not take long to eat these up within a days time. We will definitely be growing these again this year!

These grow fast

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?

Succumbed to downy mildew

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?
