80 days. A honeydew type that holds well after picking. The smooth skin is golden, the crisp flesh is green and has a rich, sweet flavor. A heavy producer of 8-10 lb fruits. Named for a city in Turkmenistan, in Central Asia, which is noted for its incredible diversity of indigenous melon types.

What are the pros? Extremely hardy seeds

What are the cons? Never makes it in 80-90 days

Review:

I have never had these melons come in at 80 days (Maryland, SC, AL) & they aren't overly copious producers or large, but I am beyond impressed with the resiliency of the seeds, at least from the stock line I purchased. I purchased the original seeds in the 2012-2014 timeframe. They survived going back & forth between storing in the freezer & fridge, then made it more than 6 weeks in room-temp storage during a move, after 2x being in trucks with temps 90 , then ANOTHER month of room temp storage after another move. The old, original seeds & the first-year saved seeds were planted this year (2017) just to give them a shot, see what sticks, at 8-10 seeds per mound (expected poor germination due to their age & poor treatment - 3 trips in hot trucks) & I sprinkled the remainder on a wildflower patch and along a fenceline. I had to thin aggressively, and they're out competing greenbriar, wild grape and baby privet on the fenceline w/o mulch, fertilizer or much help. LOVE THIS!
