75-80 days (Also known as Israel Melon) An excellent-tasting, early melon and our favorite for texture. Commonly thought to have originated in Israel, where its name means “anchor” but may have actually originated in Hungary. Flavorful green flesh; good yields of nearly round, 3-4 lb fruit; a beautiful melon! Very fragrant. A longtime favorite of the Gettle family (also from Hungary).

What are the pros? Taste, Growth

What are the cons? Ripening Time

Review:

This plant, compared to my muskmelons grew as fast. However the fruit set and ripening time took about 2 weeks longer. They do slip naturally off the vine like cantalope. Overall it was easy to grow, as I let these hang from a trelis. Just make sure you don't support them and let them slip naturally. Then after they do let them sit for one day on the counter to soften completely. One day is enough. It appears that I'll get approximately 6 melons from one plant/seed this year, which considering that they are larger 5-7 pounders, isn't bad at all. They are very dense fruits and have a very complex honey flavor. More honey and sweetness than anything else. The rind is thin so you will be happy to enjoy the entire meat section, so long as you let them slip and ripen on the counter for a day. Watered these everyday via drip in Texas 95 heat. They are very strong plants and I will be growing these again. Enjoy. :-)

What are the pros? Amazing flavor. Easy to grow.

What are the cons? Susceptible to powdery mildew.

Review:

The Ha'ogen melon definitely lives up to the hype. I've grown close to 10 different varieties of melons and this is, hands down, the most foolproof and delicious. Wow! Spicy and complex flavor. Very sweet. It's ripe once the skin turns yellow and slips from the vine. Bugs and rot got to a few that I didn't get off the soil in time, so keep an eye on that. Give this one a try. You will not be disappointed.

Review:

Maybe I got lucky. We had soooo much rain this spring and early summer. Then about 8-10 days ago it just stopped. It's been 90 and dry as a bone every day, and these guys are starting to ripen RIGHT in this hot, dry, sunny spell. Still, lucky or not, they're outstanding. I've grown Green Nutmeg, which is very good, but not as sweet (nor as big). I've also grown Ananas D'Amerique A Chair Verte as well, which was almost this sweet, but again...not as large. This one wins, at least this year. On top of being an excellent melon, it's vigorous, haven't had traces of powdery mildew like I sometimes get on my melons (despite the wet spring), and while I did have a fruit borer or two, they seemed more interested in my squash than my these guys (normally they are equal opportunity). Will grow again next year!

What are the pros? Delicious, Easy to Grow

What are the cons? Takes a while to germinate

Review:

My grandmother from Texas told me about this melon right before planting season. I looked for it online and purchased it from Baker Creek. I'm glad I did, too, because I may have never found out about the outstanding varieties they offer. The seeds took a while to germinate, but once they did they took off and began flowering after about 60 days. They were the first plants to grow in my garden, (besides my purple-hull peas, of course) and by far the first plants to produce melons. Sweeter than anything I ever grew, and fun to watch. Very heat resistant, but give it plenty of water. Grows like a cantaloupe.

Review:

These taste amazing. Like, I can't believe I grew anything that tastes this good. Started indoors, planted out in early June, grew on a trellis made with a cattle panel. The melons got heavier than I expected, so they required some support (I tied strips of an old t shirt making a soft sling), so minor in light of the dramatically delicious melons. We we definitely grow these for the rest of eternity. They are that good.
