What are the pros? abundant producer
What are the cons? need a lot of room
I tasted an orange flesh melon at a farmers market and loved it. The taste was incredible. It reminded me of eating orange sherbet. I had a very hard time finding a company that carried the seeds but finally found them at Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. I bought a pack and planted them on June 20, 2015. The melons matured very late in the growing season and as such, did not have the long hot days that melons typically like when ripening. I still got quite a few melons off my vines and the first ones that I picked were really great. As the melons ripened during the shorter days of fall, the taste fell off quite a bit. Next year, I will plant my seeds indoors in early April and then move them to my greenhouse after they sprout. I will get them in the ground no later than mid May. I'm expecting a bumper crop of the best tasting melons that I have ever had. Also, these melons will continue to ripen on your counter once picked from the garden.
