What are the pros? Delicious, Easy to Grow
What are the cons? Takes a while to germinate
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.
