85 days. Also known as (Hoodoo) an orange fleshed muskmelon dating back to around 1890. Quality 2-3 lb. netted fruit with firm, sweet, tasty flesh; one of the first "modern type" melons. It was once very popular.

Review:

We started these indoors under grow lights in late March and planted them out the first week in May. We had two (Yes, just two) vines growing and now two months later, we've harvested five melons with another half dozen or so currently still growing on the vines. Melons pop right off the vines on their own once fully ripened and have a sweet soft orange flesh that my children devour like candy. Highly recommend!

Review:

Wonderful plant, wonderful fruits. Extremely tasty and extremely prolific. No pruning required and drip irrigation will suffice. Trellised plant about 3 feet off the ground to protect melons from insects. Its important to let these types of melons slip off the vine naturally, as in do not support these melons. They are all 3 pound fruits that have no issues with hanging naturally. Here in north Texas 60 mph windstorms are common and I never had any fall off the vine from such. This thing has put out 6 - 3 pounders already in early July. This is an 80 day melon for sure down to the last day. Use the slipping of these melons as a "garden clock", so that you know where everything else in the garden stands. 85 growing days should serve as an excellent indicator for all other plants in the garden. I'm a large man and I can barely eat half of one of these. This is due to the richness of the melon. Let fall off the vine naturally and then sit on counter for two days room temp. Enjoy!

What are the pros? vigorous grower

What are the cons? no fruit

Review:

I couldn't get much out of this one in Cleveland OH. Although the plants grew large and bushy with scores of blossoms, no fruit ever set. Perhaps, this variety needs a warmer, Southern climate.

Review:

We grew these last year, and they were so juicy and delicious. The kind of really flavorful that you can't carry on a conversation while you're eating them. You have to just sit down and savor them, and let your hands and face get all sticky.

Review:

I own a small garden but this year I dedicated it to tomatoes, for my dad, and trying my hand at growing melons. I grew a few plants on the ground and trellised two others. The ground ones did fine with a few fruits per plant, but the trellised Hoodoos set about 7 at once and then a few more throughout the season. Will be growing these again. Very sweet and good scent.
