What are the pros? Vigor, productivity, taste
What are the cons? Seriously? There are none.
Incredible fruit, has preformed more incredibly than I could have imagined. Have gotten veryblittle special attention aside from a few doses of my fertilizer mix, never weeded and I never got around to mulching them before they grew too thickly to do so. Heavy producers, fruit is just starting to ripen for me. 13 plants currently holding 30 melons that will be ripe within about a week, and countless baby melons. I let them eat the jalapenos planted next to them, and an extra 3 feet outside the garden bed. I have them thickly planted with a 6inch spacing, growing up fencing materials. Vines do not seem to break or split when holding mature fruits draped over fencing. Though I have seen various garden pest insects on the vines, none have taken a liking to the apple melons, and they have been untouched. For those complaining of flavor, you are either not growing healthy plants, picking before ripe, or, you need to find some candy instead, as they are delicately sweet, almost like a pear.
