What are the pros? Love these and will grow again
What are the cons? Short harvest window
I planted these from seed sometime in March. Out of the six or so seeds I planted, I had 3 really strong plants and I transplanted in early May. They immediately took off and grew quite rapidly up our arched trellis. I was very surprised by how fast and how many fruit they have put on, harvesting our first melon in late June. Since then I have harvested over 20 melons, with probably 20-30 more growing on the vines. They have been super prolific and have stood up well in our Texas heat. I'm excited to see how they fare in August and if they will make it into fall. The taste of these is super sweet, a cross between a honeydew and cantaloupe. The only thing I have found difficult is the small window you have to harvest these. I have found that in our intense heat, it has been better to harvest these the night before even if they look like they could use another day or two. I made the mistake of leaving them to ripen more only to find the next evening the have split and burst like popcorn.
