90 days. One of the largest types we sell--oblong fruit has reached over 200 lbs! Bright red flesh is sweet and remarkably fine-grained for such a large melon. Needs a long hot summer to reach its full potential. Grow this one for bragging rights!

What are the pros? Huge, sweet, prolific

What are the cons? Ripeness hard to judge

Review:

Grew on blue plastic mulch with drip tape. Row covers to start. Babied for the 1st half of the season with aggressive organic amendments and sprays. Let them fair on their own once fruit got large. Even given the extreme care I gave the first two plants I grew in 2019, I was impressed with Carolina Cross 180. Ended up with about 4-5 fruit per plant over the season. My top weights were 75-95 lbs, but the average was closer to 50. All had incredibly sweet flesh that tended toward pink or red/white. It was harder than normal to judge ripeness on the vine because the fruit continued to grow even after tendril browning. But even the "unripe" melons had a huge core of sweet flesh inside the 2-3 inches of unripe rind. Competed well but didnt overwhelm other vining plants nearby. No pest/disease problems of note. I was unsuccessful in a 3rd plant later in the season. Same initial setup, but only light care after. Vines stunted and only 1 medium fruit. Should have fertilized much more.

Review:

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!
