80 days. Yellow-fleshed Polish variety. Oblong fruits 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:

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

Review:

This was my first year growing this variety, and I'm glad I gave it a shot! I direct-sowed in late May and harvested full-ripe in the second week of September (roughly 105 days). I had 9 melons off of two hills, average size was 8-11 lbs with the largest weighing in at just under 14 lbs. I didn't have any round melons like the photo depicts; all of mine were oval or oblong. The flesh was a beautiful peachy-yellow with brown seeds and a very nice dense and crisp texture. The rind was firm and very dark green. Taste-wise, I found them sweeter and more mellow than my regular red varieties. I actually had these planted in a bed that was relatively neglected, and the vigorous vines thrived in my heavily clay soil with only light watering during extended dry periods. The only negatives from my point-of-view are the relative seediness and slightly later maturity than my other icebox-sized melons. I'll definitely plant this variety next year.

What are the pros? Heat tolerant.

What are the cons? Long maturity. Too many seeds.

Review:

Had a unique, almost citrusy flavor. They are very delicious, but I will grow them again. Way too many seeds for it to be worth while trying to get to the flesh. They also take a very long time to grow to maturity. Because of how much time they take and how many seeds they have, this one is a bust for me and I will not bother with them again.

Review:

My first year trying Janosik. First time I have ever grown yellow meat melons of any kind. This variety grows easily making melons from 8-10 lbs to my biggest which was 16.6 lbs. Slightly different flavor than what I am used to but interesting and good. If you want a smallish yellow meat melon, this variety is worth trying.
