What are the pros? Smell, prolific
What are the cons? None
The vines grow quickly and give lots of flowers and set lots of fruit at no detrement to quality of each melon. I knew when they were ripe since turned yellow with green stripes and you could smell it walking by the patch. They fell off vine when ripe. Grown in clay soil mixed with chicken coop.litter and straw. Tolerated hot new mexico summer and very little irrigation needed, growth spurt in monsoon season (july-sept).

What are the pros? Size, flavor, texture
This is a wonderful melon. I grew one of these melons last summer and it was amazing!! About the size of a rugby ball and orange sweet flesh. This summer I am skipping the cantaloupes and just planting these along with orange flesh honeydews as my primary melons. I highly recommend this melon.

What are the pros? Delicious!
What are the cons? Huge
We grew these huge watermelon-size melons here in the Sacramento Valley. It tolerated the extra-hot summer (110 degrees afternoons) and in fact seemed to enjoy the heat. We got a very heavy crop. Our family could eat a half a melon for an afternoon snack. The negative was its huge size, because typical roadside stand buyers wanted only enough for one or two people, not much more! So we started selling them by the halves or quarters. One lady bought a whole one to take to a party, and later someone who had been at the party stopped in with us to buy one because he had to have more of it! Make sure you pick it before it is overripe, because the texture is best when on the crisp side, not mushy. They are ripe when the skin begins to yellow and soften just a bit, but should still have some dark green in the "ditches" when you pick it. Also if the stem is starting to soften, high time to pick it. They go bad pretty quickly in the heat.

We let one of these field ripen earlier this summer. It's huge with a very delicate flavor, smells like vanilla ice cream.

We planted these casaba melons with high hopes and were not dissapointed! The first two we harvested were 22 lbs each. The we're planted in rabbit manure and required very little care. Watch closely because the ripen very quickly from one day to the next. There is one large melon stilll not ripe yet, but it could be 25 to 28lbs!
