What are the pros? flavor
What are the cons? maturity difficult to tell
It has been a few years since I have planted honey dew. I planted about 2-3 hills and harvested 12-16 melons. Very good yield I think. Harvested melons throughout August which is early for Iowa.. It does not slip when ripe like other melons so i harvested when melons turned a deep yellow and the outer skin showed callus tissue forming on the outside and near the stem. We had dry weather for about 4 weeks and when the rain finally came, I was afraid the melons would burst but they did not! I took some to our local farmers market where we offered samples. Several people bought them saying they didn't like honey dew but this one changed their minds. In my personal opinion it is one of the best honeydews I have grown with a very nice sweet taste.
