Fragrant, incredibly delicious flesh that keeps getting rave reviews from our customers and is a favorite of our staff. This historic heirloom was grown by Thomas Jefferson in 1794. It was offered commercially in the U.S. in 1824, and it was illustrated in color in France in 1854 in the Vilmorin Album. This wonderful variety has become very rare. The fruit has netted skin and light green flesh that is firm, sweet, and highly perfumed. Productive plants can be trained up a trellis..

What are the pros? Low maintenance, rapid growth

What are the cons? Bugs bother fruit constantly

Review:

Grew another few plants this year, and I would like to address fruiting in actual high sustained temperatures (sorry yankees! 85f is "cool" down here). This plant will not fruit in Texas heat very well at all. It will bloom fairly profusely and create many small fruits, but they all tend to just evaporate if your days are constantly 90-100 degrees. Nearing late fall, when temps average 75-95, fruiting occurs much more readily, with flowers coming in waves. This season has seen a lot of rain which will cause them to split like many melons, and I have also noticed bugs of all kinds will scab the melons up and get inside if you don't rotate or spray the fruit. I imagine a mild texas winter would see fruit production through feb/march, later if you consider how errant our weather can be. I plan on seeding part of the pasture with seeds collected from these melons, each one yields probably 75-125 viable seeds. They'll probably do poorly but you'll never know 'till you try!

What are the pros? Pretty vines & flowers

What are the cons? The melon!

Review:

I had such high hopes for these! Very pretty vines with nice small leaves and little yellow flowers; two plants covered a large area in no time flat! The bees loved them and very quickly we had 10 melons growing! Left to mature, I waited and waited until I couldn't wait any longer. Once the netting pattern started to show, I cut a test one. Definitely unripe, with green interior, much more like a cucumber, but no flavor. So I waited until I got more yellow skin (and the bugs started to munch on the exterior). These were definitely ripe (tons of juice and very soft flesh), but just not a good flavor. No sweetness and a huge disappointment. I even waited until some got almost red flesh, but the same result. I boiled down the ripest ones to make a sort of melon applesauce with ginger and sugar so I didn't waste a crop. I may just pick the rest unripe ones to pickle like cucumbers. These were a bust for me.

Out of all the melons I grew last year this was my favorite. I would pick one and sit down at our dining room table and just devour it. It was so good!

Review:

Planted a couple in planters, then an errant truck ran one of the planters over one night. I got two melons out of the remaining plant. pretty good, although the second split on the bottom from excess rain. Still good though. They weren't quite as sweet as expected, but I chalk that up to me being impatient. VERY fragrant when nearing ripe. One will smell up the whole house in a good way. Not really bothered by 100 degree days,just a little leaf coloration if anything. Got an aphid infestation at one point, so maybe not the most resistant to pests.
