What are the pros? Sweet and tasty!
What are the cons? Gophers like them too much.
So I had a couple of these planted in my garden this year, and the vines were beautiful & the fruit was amazing! Alas, after harvesting only one mature melon, the gophers got to the rest of my Moon & Stars melon plants and killed their root systems. The one fruit we did get was super sweet, a little seedy (but that's ok). My only disappointment was that the gophers killed my plants before the rest of the fruits were able to mature (I planted 2 vines, each of which had 3-4 melons starting to develop when the gophers moved in). They were in my only garden bed that isn't lined with hardware cloth. You can rest assured I will be growing these delicious, juicy, super-sweet melons again in the future! I'm just going to plant them in a different bed (kicking my toe in the dirt, head down, mumbling curse words at the gophers as I walk away....).
