What are the pros? turns golden when ripe, slips
What are the cons? susceptible to 2-spotted mites
This melon is very sweet and richly flavored with a firm but melting flesh. It is very easy to tell when ripe because it turns a golden yellow and slips from the stem. The melons are small but the seed cavity is small and the flesh is good right down to the rind. The rind is very hard almost like a winter squash, in fact it is hard to tell these melon from the small spaghetti squash I grow, except they are smaller. Some of them are only about the size of a softball. There are a lot of them, however.They keep very well on the counter top and in the fridge. They ripened earlier than any of my other melons which was about 85-90 days after setting out.
