What are the pros? Easy to grow, very prolific
What are the cons? Taste--there is none.
This melon has everything going for it-almost. It's very easy to grow. Beautiful vines, grew up a trellis very well. Very prolific, I had lots of melons. Can be eaten at almost any stage, though I did not like the really young ones at all. But the problem is the taste! They do not taste like a cucumber, period. The texture is wonderful, very crisp and juicy, but the taste is so disappointing because there just isn't any. I made pickles and dill relish with them. The pickles took on the taste of dill, and in the relish it took on the taste of the dill and onions, but no cucumber taste at all--because they are not cucumbers!! Forget them for dill pickles. I left several to become fully ripe and then they do not taste good as a melon either, barely a hint of sweet, just bland. Hubby says to him they tasted like the white in a watermelon rind. I have not figured out a satisfying reason to grow these. Sorry, I really wanted to like these, but just couldn't.
