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? good producer. large fruit.

What are the cons? took longer than advertised

Review:

Great honeydew type melon that really do grow 8-10 lbs each! I grew them up archways I made by bending over pieces of cattle fencing and they climbed right up! Nothing looked remotely ripe at 90 days, or even 100 days. I took in the first melon at 110 days and even it looked like it could use some more time on the vine. About 2/3 of the flesh was the frosted pale green that indicates the sweet tender fruit, but the rest was still the darker green of unripe, hard fruit. The second one I took in about 10 days later and it was about the same in ripeness, although much larger (about 9.5 lbs as opposed to the first being 8.25). I think with a little more time on the vine I will be able to better judge when they are ready to come in. At this time, I still have about 12-15 more melons the size of volleyballs hanging off of the trellis between 4 plants total.

What are the pros? Great flavor, grew large

What are the cons? None

Review:

I planted with rich compost and with drip irrigation. Fresno is extremely hot climate. Triple digits during the day in the summer, and sometimes is often 90-95 degrees at 10pm. The melons flourished, grew large, and were ready before even my Kazakh melons surprisingly. Under such warm sunny conditions any melon of this type will flourish, so it’s hard to judge in that respect. But it was as heavy of a producer as the Alacati melons I planted, which also produced hevily. Both out produced the “golden honeydew” from Baker Creek that I also planted. A winner and recommended for hot climates.

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!
