What are the pros? Very juicy and sweet!!

What are the cons? None

Review:

This was my first melon to mature (76 days) this year. It had a real sweet juicy flavor. A nice sweet aroma as well. I think the West Texas soil and hot weather helped contribute to the awesome flavor. I’m growing some in a raised bed with a cattle panel trellis and it grows really well up the trellis. I have several melons in nets that are hanging, however the ones on the ground are slightly larger. The first one I picked weighed in at 3 lbs 7 oz. As the season progresses I’ll update my review after I’ve picked some more.

Disappointing flavor and textu

EarlyMaturity 3.5
 

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Poor flavor, not sweet

Review:

Compared to the other melons which grew side by side, this was a big disappointment. Lots of juice but no flavor. Poor interior color and flavor compared to Petit Gris Des Rennes or Noir Des Carmes. Will not grow again.

What are the pros? An honest heirloom

What are the cons? PMR is sweeter

Review:

For MomsintheGarden, 51 stands for 1951 - the year it was released to the public, not days to maturity. Delicious 51 was developed to be resistant to fusarium race 2. It's not the sweetest. PMR Delicious 51 is much sweeter and is Powdery Mildew Resistant.

What are the pros? none

What are the cons? Late, not sweet

Review:

Grew at the same time in the same area as Pear Melon, and this produced fewer melons that weren't as sweet. They took much longer than expected (the 51 means 51 days). Wouldn't grow these again.

Review:

We were first told about Delicious 51 from a Kansas farmer who said this was always their best melon. It's on the higher end of the maturity date for Colorado however it thrives when we have very warm/hot type summers even tho our nights are cool. Very prolific, extremely sweet and huge melons. In the right conditions, it's one of the best you can grow!
