Apple Melon

85 days. Adorable little tear-drop shaped melons just fit your hand. The cheerful golden-yellow-and green striped skin is thin like many Asian types; the fruit is eaten skin and all, like an apple. Our growers, the Gingerich family of Kentucky, first found this variety in Filadelfia in the Gran Chaco region of western Paraguay, in 1968. They grew it elsewhere in Paraguay and Belize for years before moving to Kentucky, where they have enjoyed it for several years. They and we are excited to pass this gem onto you!

What are the pros? This was super easy to grow

What are the cons? I got tired of the taste

Review:

So I live in Deep South Texas where 100 degree weather lasts for several months, so there are some plants that I can't grow. This melon however did very well in the heat and produced many fruit. Each vine that I grew produced at least 20 little melons throughout the summer. I would however recommend growing other melons beside this one as after eating so many fruits the taste will get old. They tasted sweet and refreshing, but after eating them over and over... well you get the point. I think I will grow these again, but maybe not next year. I would however recommend growing this, especially if you live in a very hot environment.

What are the pros? thrives in heat, drought

What are the cons? Skin can be bitter

Review:

I remember these from my childhood in the Chaco Paraguay! I must say I have never heard of eating the skin though. The skin can be very bitter. If you live in a desert, this is the melon to grow.

Review:

I live in Austria, Europe and we have a cool, short season. I never got a ripe melon, no mather what I did. This year I try 8 varieties of melons and this one was the very first that got ripe. Its easy to grow and easy to harvest becauseit turns yellow when its ripe. It tastet wonderfull. Very sweet, very fresh and it continues to produce.

Review:

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.
