80-85 days. This heirloom from the Ukraine was collected in 1993 by Seed Savers Exchange. Very popular on Island of Krim in the Black Sea. Melons ripen to a yellowish-gold and the white flesh has a very high sugar content, a favorite among heirloom gardeners and growers alike. Ripens early, even in Russia, and tolerates comparatively cool summers—known to do well in Canada.

What are the pros? Good keepers and easy to grow

What are the cons? Tend to split. Watch carefully

Review:

Without a doubt the best melon I've ever grown in this area. Bordering on Zone 3, regular cantaloupes just don't have enough warm days to be sweet, but the Collective Farm Woman produces several melons per vine and as the others have said, are delicious. It's the only melon I grow that's worth the space, time, and effort. Two thumbs up!

Review:

This was a very interesting melon. We grew it on our farm for the first time this year. It was average in terms of production. I would guess we harvested three melons per vine. The melons were very sweet with a very very nice flavor. The flesh is almost white inside and we think the texture is somewhat like a pear or an apple. Everyone who tasted them at our summer farmstand praised the flavor and sweetness, but some did not care for the texture which was unlike a standard melon. Others thought the texture was the best part given that the melon wasn't soft. it had a firmer, crisper nature to it, and was sweet as could be. We'll likely grow them again, although not in great quantities as it wasn't a big seller for us.

What are the pros? Easy to grow!!!

What are the cons? None so far.

Review:

I grew this in a (large) container, so I wasn't expecting much. But I did get several small melons! The taste was something between cantaloupe and honeydew. Very refreshing. I collected the seeds from those and will be planing in the ground this year, hopefully getting higher yields.

Review:

I've grown this and the Ineya melon both (during the same year) and I'll swear they're the same melon. That aside, this is an excellent melon that I grow every year. It does tend to split when ripe so you really have to keep an eye on it. Splitting is a characteristic I really don't like and a number of melons I don't grow any longer because of it, but the taste on this one is good enough it keeps a place in my garden. This is basically what I think of as a "honeydew" type melon, but the flavor isn't that of a standard Honeydew. It is VERY sweet. Among my family, my neighbors, and many people from my church who have tried my melons, this one always gets top votes from the "honeydew" types and sometimes overall. It turns orange as it ripens. When it hits full orange it will be at peek ripeness within 2-4 days. It does not slip (or at least not easily). The flesh is white and fairly dry for a melon though there's still plenty of juice. The melon is round and 6-8 in. diameter on average
