A big, pretty, oblong melon with musky-sweet orange flesh. Heavily netted and up to 15 lbs in size, this melon was developed by E.J. Healy of St. Francisville, IL. it is a great melon for most of the Midwest and was introduced in 1952. High quality flesh with a great taste makes for some great eating.

What are the pros? Big, sweet, and flavorful

What are the cons? Lots of punky fruits

Review:

This was a fun melon to grow. They start out tear drop shaped and end up oval toward ripening. Excellent flavor and productive plants. I had 10 or so small punky melons on these vines though, which melons tend to do, a detraction from marketable fruit production. Will grow again to see if I can refine as some vines yielded 3 very large melons over 8 pounds.

Review:

I grew a garden for the first time this year and tried several different varieties of melons. All of my melons were attacked by squash vine borers and I thought I wouldn't get to harvest any for eating. I was able to get one good melon and it was a Healy's Pride. It was absolutely delicious! It weighed about 15 pounds and as soon as I cut it up, it was gone. I highly recommend this melon and will grow it again next year with protection from the vine borers.

Review:

This melon gets big! My biggest one this year was 12 lbs. They taste wonderful , better than any of the other melons I grew. It did good in our northern climate, even with the late spring we had. I cut them up and put them on the dehydrator and have cantaloupe chips all winter!
