What are the pros? productive
What are the cons? not so sweet
This was only my second year attempting melons, and I tried three varieties. Of the three, this one probably produced the most melons, but they took forever to ripen. I finally cut some off the vine, but they weren't ripe. Turns out they turn completely bright yellow when they are fully ripe, not just mostly yellow. We got a couple melons that were sweet, but not the sugary sweet I was hoping for. Could be we got too much rain early, then not enough rain later in the season? I'm an amateur, so take that into consideration. In any case, the vines did produce but I was a little disappointed in the result.

What are the pros? Prolific blooms, many fruits
What are the cons? None
I planted 3 seeds around the trellis that had previously held cucumbers in early to mid September. It was a trial run with these seeds, and I was a little late to get them into the soil. All 3 seeds germinated and grew beautifully, climbing the trellis, and displayed many blooms that attracted a lot of bees. From the 3 plants, there were a few dozen female blooms so I was getting excited about having all of those developing melons. But then we got a big rain storm which messed up the pollination of many, so I ended up with only a half dozen ripe melons before the freeze. These melons are small, single serving size, but they are delicious !! The flavor is a crisp honeydew flavor. Cut them in half, scoop out the seeds, and eat the melon right from the rind with a spoon. This one is a keeper.

What are the pros? Tasty, Early, Productive
What are the cons? none
This is one of the ones I found years ago in the Seed Savers Exchange. I may have been the indirect supplier to Baker? I have raised it for 20 years. The son (or nephew) of the original grower from Old Gurney Seeds talked to me about it too, though he did not have a lot more info. I sent him seeds as he lost out, but was glad to get them back. Anyway it's really early, really tasty, and can be hugely productive. This one also stores extremely well - so is sort of a 'Winter Melon" type besides an "Asian" type. I've kept them till after Christmas (served some at dinner), harvested in mid-October. I thought it was a honeydew, but it's not really, just a green-fleshed melon. It doe's not have that musky - muskmelon aroma, so it is a bit more like a honeydew in that respect. The size is perfect for one to three people. I live in a hot day, cold night, short season (sometimes) area, so this is a real winner here. But I think it's of a quality that everyone would find it worthwhile.

What are the pros? Sweet and refreshing
What are the cons? Not much
I grew the Kazakh in sandy soil that had not been amended for many years. They still taste wonderful. Much like sugar cane. Highly recommended. I hope Baker Creek continues to stock this seed! Next year should be even better after I deal with soil issues.

This melon has a humble vine with smallish leaves, but the melons are amazing- a crisp green flesh which is sweeter than most melons. Very much a delicacy- this is the type of fruit that serves as a treat for special guests or as a wonderful gift. Keep all of your seeds as you will surely be asked to share!
