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 USA 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 have 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

What are the cons? timid fruiting

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.

Review:

2016 was my first year trying to grow this melon. While I got everything out too late (mid-June), this variety grew nicely in the heat and produced several smaller melons. The flavor was truly outstanding: they tasted like caramel/butterscotch! Absolutely divine! Even the tiniest melons late in the season had this marvelous flavor. Definitely growing again in '17 and setting out earlier!

What are the pros? easy to grow, quick ripening

What are the cons? Children didn't like the taste

Review:

A great small melon for the Minnesota gardener! This one did great in my southern facing bed, rambling all over my water feature, in the sunniest, hottest spot of my garden. The pretty vines got a lot of compliments from passersby. Very vigorous, these easily out-competed my other melon (charentais) so consider growing this by itself, and on a trellis. We got a nice harvest of melons, but be careful, these do NOT slip when ripe. Very fragrant, almost perfumed flesh, great for a refined taste, but it wasn't a favorite with my younger children.

What are the pros? easy to grow

What are the cons? needed insect protection

Review:

This melon was pretty easy to grow and produced 3-4 2lb-3lb fruits per plant. When picked ripe, they were great tasting. Ripe when disconnects from the stem. My problem was that wasps where burrowing into the fruit just before they needed picked. Maybe this was a bad year for wasps here, but if I let they fruit properly ripen they would get attacked, if I picked earlier they were not as sweet. Next time I will try to protect the fruit from insects.

What are the pros? the history of this melon

What are the cons? texture

Review:

We've been growing melons for years, and this is one of the few we did not care for. It was very productive, compact vines, cute little melons, fragrant, and sweet....which are all the things we like in a melon. But we found this melon to be really soft and mushy when ripe. If we picked before the flesh turned soft, it had no flavor or sweetness. If we waited until fully ripe, they were too soft to sell. None of our buyers liked them. I'm sure there are plenty of people who will like this melon and won't mind the soft texture, but we couldn't sell the small crop we grew.
