What are the pros? Sugary taste texture of flesh
What are the cons? Nothing at all comes to mind.
These are my absolute favorite water melon of all time! I've tried all kinds over the years but got mostly all vines. The fruits that did set on the vines got tip rot & drop off. Never had luck with rich soil! I'd dig big holes & fill w/rotted horse manure, rotted grass & leaves, table scraps...you name it. I'd hill over this material, plant & thin to 3-5 plants. After a divorce I moved & rented a new spot but it had no top soil, only hard pan clay & very wet. It was a rented spot in a Community Garden and the poorest dirt I've ever worked. I made a few small hills w/nothing in them, just clay dirt. Side dressed with triple 10 when they sprouted & again when the bloom set on & that's al! I had hardly any vines at all but I had 7 25-30 lb. Charleston Gray and 5 lesser sized melons but they were still bigger than any from my past. The poor soil made the best melon patch I've EVER had my whole life! I learned a valuable lesson on that poor ground that season. Less vine = more melons!!!
