80 days. Yellow-fleshed Polish variety. Oblong fruit to about 10 lbs. The extra sweet, yellow flesh is lovely in contrast with the dark green rinds. Crisp and delicious! Beautiful, uniform fruit and one of the best eating bright yellow types!

Review:

Direct sowed Janosik in raised bed w/ Long Island Cheese pumpkins. We trellised both on tent styled cattle panels to keep them elevated, air circulating around the plants and off the soil so as to avoid infestations. 75% direct sun, 25% shade. Both did well. The Janosik tolerated the unbearable heat of west central FL, 9B, extremely well. At times temps reached in excess of 100. We went from non-stop rain for days/ weeks to no rain. The vines set several fruit. While the heat did knock out a number of babies, those that survived were in good form. Premature harvest owing to worms boring skins. Good flavor, delicate almost floral-like. Flavor would likely develop if left on vine longer. No soil amendments, no fertilizer, no pesticide. Lots of love. Good growers! Yes, a lot of seeds, small ones. We counted 130 seeds in one 8 lb-er. Seeds were concentrated in lines & easily cut out. Kids ate them, unbothered. Longer to mature than stated. No rot. A lil' difficult to tell when fully ripe.

Review:

I direct sowed too early and in an area that didn't get nearly enough sun so they were super slow taking off. I also didn't water nor fertilize these. Out of the 3 neglected plants that managed to survive, I was able to harvest 1 melon. Oh! My! GOODNESS!!!! It was ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! I'll definitely grow this variety next year & make it a priority!

Review:

I grew four of these along with four of each of Desert King, Cream of Saskatchewan, Orangeglo, and King and Queen of Winter. I collected the first fruits from this variety, and probably ended up with 2 or 3 fruit per plant. Flavor was good, the size was very consistent throughout the season, and I put a few into storage with samples of the other varieties. These did not keep well. They developed chill injury soft spots and rotted under the same conditions that Desert King and King and Queen of Winter handled just fine.

Review:

Very sweet melon with beautiful yellow flesh and dark green striped rind. Our second year raising them and so far biggest melon is 23 lbs. many more large ones to eat yet. Ripen about same time as Blacktail mountain if similar pollination time occurs. The big ones aren't that seedy so previous reviewers must have had smaller melons.

Review:

This grew abundantly. Nice round eight or 10 pound fruits started them inside. Plants were slow to take off then they jumped. Had melons about 80 days from setting out transplants. Real nice almost honey like taste must have been over 100 fruits from like 10 vines. Held for weeks in garden . Rabbits got a few till I smoked one with a .243...way too much gun for a rabbit! Leave my melons alone please mr shredded bunny now I want to try an orange watermelon
