What are the pros? Easy, productive, very tasty
What are the cons? long growing season
Did these for the first time this yr. Planted too late in the season and wasn't able to allow them to fully ripen on the vine, so picked almost fully green to save from rot. Got about 14 of them, around softball size. Reeeeally tasty melons, I wasn't sure if they'd be palatable since I read honeydew wouldn't ripen after picking and these seem similar, but they did indeed ripen. Super fragrant and as others said the smell will fill the room. They look awesome too. These are basically, at the end of the day, really cool looking honeydew melons as far as taste/smell/consistency.
I brought a cpl to an indian fellow who cuts my hair, he was quite stunned to see them here and asked where I bought them haha. I'd definitely recommend these to others. I did not personally find the consistency to be like "an overripe banana" as another reviewer commented.
