What are the pros? good producer. large fruit.
What are the cons? took longer than advertised
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.
