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).

Review:

This was my first year to grow this melon and I was surprised by how sweet and tasty it was. To me, it tasted like it had a somewhat tropical type flavor. The texture was great and tasty down to the rind, so not hardly any meat was wasted. I had no diseases of any kind on this plant while some of my other melons growing nearby had quite a few problems that I believe were due to all the heavy rain and humid conditions. I only grew 3 plants but they were very productive and healthy. I lost track of how many melons we harvested throughout the season. It is almost October now and there are still a few tiny melons we are harvesting but not quite as tasty as they were in the summer, but that is to be expected as the melon season is winding down. Harvesting was really simple. The melons turn yellow and slip from the vine easily. I let them sit for about a day before eating and they are just right. If you don't eat it within a day, it's best to refidgerate. I will be growing this again.

Delicious but low yield
Easy to Grow 3.5
EarlyMaturity 2.5
 

What are the pros? Delicious fruit

What are the cons? Very few ripe melons

Review:

The fruit is firm, beautiful, and full of flavor -- no complaints there!! However, out of eight small plants, I got only three fully ripe melons. I don't understand why, because the plants were vigorous and loaded with blossoms, and covered with busy honeybees. So why only three mature fruits? There were no weather problems this summer that I'm aware of.

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. :-)

Absolutely Amazing Melon
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

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!
