What are the pros? Amazing flavor. Easy to grow.
What are the cons? Susceptible to powdery mildew.
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.

What are the pros? Very sweet, great flavor
What are the cons? None yet
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
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.

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.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, great taste,
What are the cons? Exploded after rain
These are one of my favorite melons. Easy to grow and heat tolerant. They did sunburn in this year's 100?. A little hard to tell when they are perfectly ripe. Then the weather broke and it rained. My melons started splitting wide open and their flavor turned a little bland.
