What are the pros? Sweet, early, hardy, JUICY!!!
What are the cons? a bit seedy but not so bad
Last year was my first garden. I got these in the ground on the last day of May, so a month later than recommended in my area. They caught up nicely and produced about 2 melons per plant before the frost (they were gearing up to produce more but I snipped them so they could finish the bigger ones before the freeze. Despite harvesting in late September and missing that prime heat exposure, the melons were remarkably sweet and fragrant! Plus there is a special satisfaction when you get to serve a white watermelon margarita to the person who said you were nuts when you wanted to grow watermelon on a mountain. This year I will be testing these bad boys out on a cattle panel trellis, and I can't wait to see how sweet they can be with the summer heat!
