What are the pros? Easy grower, big producer
What are the cons? Long growing season
We have grown this Carolina cross the past two summers here in Massachusetts. The first year we picked a 51lb melon on Aug 19 but it was too early and not ripe. We now wait until late September to pick in our climate (or later). We plant seeds June 1 directly into garden soil. Last year we also had a 75lb melon and it tasted good but waited until Oct 10 to pick. This season we picked a 25, 40, 42, 65, 80 and 128lb melon. The 128lb melon is so large two people are needed to move it!
