95 days. The largest melon we carry. Huge, oblong fruit averages 14-22 lbs. each! The skin is green, turning yellowish when ripe. The flesh is very sweet, melting, and of excellent quality. The vines set heavy yields. This variety was sent to us by a retired minister from Indiana. It has been in his family for many years, originating in Kentucky. This is a melon to give any grower pride.

What are the pros? Size; sweet, decadent flesh.

What are the cons? Not uniform in appearance.

Review:

These are awesome. We put down black plastic over the whole melon patch, cut large Xs in the plastic at the location of each hill to be planted, and pounded a short stake at the location of each hill so we could spot-water from outside the bed. We had 3 hills of these (4 plants each) and probably ended up with about 20 decent size melons. Largest were around 16 lbs. Easy to grow and easy to tell when they ripened. Amazingly sweet, succulent flesh. We ended up turning about half of the melons into Cantaloupe Sorbet. Out of this world. My one complaint is that the melons seemed to be of a number of shapes, colors and styles of ribbing. Can't help but wonder whether the seeds we got were pure or had cross-pollinated with something. Some fruit were quite oblong; others quite fat and oval. Some had deep ribbing; others had ribbing that was only visual. Any chance these may have cross-pollinated with your Bidwell's Casaba?

Review:

Well I had prepped a large raised bed for Cucumbers, lots of organic compost and fertilizer, started the seeds in pots, as soon as they got up I transplanted them at 3' centers and created my trellis system.Wow they sure are branching for Cucumbers....I was perplexed, I added up side down tomato cages and strung them all together with twine. I encouraged them to climb and it was Jack and the beanstalk! They busted loose and covered the whole thing. Then a heavy wind came and bowled the thing over like a crashing wave. Then the fruit came.....weirdo. now I'm harvesting 30 pound monsters due to the extra shade the trellis (folded over) made for the vines- now they are running like Olympic swimmers over to the pumpkin patch. Total accident- I'm tickled! I have no idea where the seed came from, I only ordered cucumber seeds so.......hmmm. sometimes the worst accidents are the best experiences. I highly recommend this one!! Matthew Gardens the Globe- #plantitforward

Review:

We've really enjoyed this melon. It is productive and large. Most fruits are mild flavor, but there was an occasional not sweet on. Not overwhelmingly sweet, but pleasant melt-in-your-mouth soft. Bugs do tend to gather under the shelter of the fruit, and sometimes give a little sampling. Sometimes they crack after a rain. Their don't have a long shelf life. This past year, we had sooo many. We are them for all meals, and stored them in the frig, but some still went bad.

What are the pros? large; colorful; taste

What are the cons? bugs on the underside; storage

Review:

I grew a plant in 2015. It got a couple very large fruits; the first one looked a lot like a pumpkin when it was ripe (yes, it had an orange rind; maybe parts of the rind were yellow). It may have been overripe, in fact, but it was a great time to pick it, I felt. They were the juciest melons I've had, with very soft, very sweet, tasty flesh. They surprised everyone who saw them, I think. The main con is that bugs tend to eat little holes in the rind underneath when it's ripe, if it's resting on the soil. You pretty much want to eat them as soon as they're ripe. Mine were pretty big, but I believe they weren't nearly as big as this variety can get (and they still turned heads). We grew it on a patch with black plastic on the ground, and watered it an average amount early on, and very little later on.

What are the cons? Tends to split at end

Review:

I was excited to add Ginger's Pride cantaloupe to the "melon patch lineup" this year and had high hopes for it. All I can say is WOW! The description says they average between 14-22 pounds, from what I witnessed in my garden this year, y'all need to raise the upper end weight. ;) So far we've had 5 20 pounders off the 2 vines we planted with several more still growing. The largest so far was 25.111 pounds and measured a hair shy of 18" from flower end to stem and tasted really darn good. I really hope you plan on having these available for 2019 cause there's a bushel of people wanting seeds after seeing my marvelous monster melons.
