Review:

Stuck a Jubilee set plant and planted seeds of Ali Baba & Clay County Yellow Meat (CCYM) in a 5' wide mound. The Jubilee took over early on and filled up the 200 sq ft plot with vines because it had a several week head start but the CCYM Competed nicely setting two 25 lb melons in amongst the big Jubilees. Ppoor Ali Baba never had a chance which was a surprise because Ali Baba took over the same plot last year. Harvested the CCYMs at around the same time as the Jubilees even though it was started from seed. Now it's late July and the CCYM vines are the only ones still alive and have set three more melons. Sweeter than the Jubilee by a smidgen, nice flavor, good texture. I grew seedless Orange Crisp last year but I like the CCYM better (seeds and all). I'm giving it it's own plot next year and going for a 50 pounder.
