What are the pros? texture and color

What are the cons? Seeds

Review:

This melon produces a lot of fruits, however most of them are tiny and packed with big seeds making them unappealing The big ones have flat bottoms and suffer from horrendous hollow heart. The ali baba that was planted in the same field does not produce as much but they don't have hollow heart. I'm sad, I have some giant empty melons in my field. Planted them for hotels, but I guess it'd count as a crop failure. :'(

Review:

These grew well for me here in Pueblo where it's pretty hot and dry but also a shortish season. They fruited on a trellace but my big one grew on the ground. I didn't think they were ripe so I left them on the vine until it started to snow around October 15. Then I picked them and ate them. And they WERE ripe! The yellow flesh is really pretty. I will grow these again.

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.

What are the pros? Granpa's favorite orange melon

What are the cons? None

Review:

Grandpa used to go and find these from a man he knew and he swore they were the best orange melon he ever ate, sugar babies were his favorite red, but Grandma and me always loved Red Rattlesnake watermelons very best of red ones from up on Straight Mountain by Oneonta, Al. Anyway, the flavor was "orangey" and just right, not pulpy, good firm meat, same size as sugar babies, but maybe slightly smaller. They were seedy in the middle, but it was mostly in the center and who cared if you had to spit a couple out, the fleshy part really had something unusual about it, solid and I cannot describe the flavor, except just right sweet and the aroma was heavenly for sure, mmm. I don't know how they grew because Grandpa bought them. But definately a winner on taste and a treat to smell when you cut one open cold:)!
