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.

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.

Review:

So, I wanted the largest muskmelon to grow. I picked this variety. I used the northern "MI" method to grow these though I live close to IN. I used a 2 1/2' square piece of clear plastic to cover a huge hill after it was watered. I planted 3 plants in the hill by cutting an X in the plastic. I also cut a small hole in the middle of the hill for a wine bottle so I could water daily when needed. I got 7 large melons that are really tasty. I estimate that I got about 100 lbs of melon from one hill. I could not be happier. Unlike the Ledmon watermelon review, I knew when these were ready to pick. There is no dislikes for this amazing muskmelon. I picked three of 7 today: 8/18/16. The others should be ready by the end of August.

Review:

growing up i always wished cantaloupes were as big as watermelons and this thing was my dream come true! my first melon was 12 pounds and tasted really good. we got 4 plates full from the one melon. i plan on growing these again every year. the vines are pretty long, in an 8 foot raised bed it has grown all the way across and back.
