A pre-1800s variety that was long ago preserved by Carmelite monks in France. Round/oblate, slightly ribbed 1.5 to 4 lb fruit. Sweet, juicy orange flesh. Reputed cold tolerance too!

Very prolific melon
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

What are the pros? Very prolific and easy to grow

What are the cons? Not as flavorful as others.

Review:

A very good grower here in zone 10a. Got 100% germination and set out four plants in two hills. We harvested 30 nice sized melons from 3-6 lb with no split or otherwise damaged or spoiled fruit. Taste was good, like a peach/watermelon cross, very juicy but not very sweet. We picked green with a tinge of yellow and let sit in the pantry for about 10 days until they turned completely yellow.

Not so sweet melon cups
Easy to Grow 3.5
EarlyMaturity 3.5
 

What are the pros? even sized

What are the cons? Not that sweet, not productive

Review:

I've found this melon quite bland. I ate it of out duty for most of them. But, flavor aside, it was a cute, even-sized fruit with relatively thick flesh.

What are the pros? Very prolific!

What are the cons? Flavor mild, not as sweet

Review:

High producer. We had sufficient rain, that we only watered couple of times. The flesh is soft, and very mild. I would recommend for pairing with other fruit, because alone, it seemed bland. Our American tastes are tuned to the sweetest Honey Rock hybrids, and I was surprised that it had good melon flavor, but without the sweetness I expected. Because of the good rains we had in Agust, I also wondered if some of the sugars were diluted.

Its orange yellow when ripe

What are the pros? taste!

What are the cons? none

Review:

It was easy to tell when ripe, it turns orangish color. Good producer, good sweet aromatic flavor. Texture is just right but when it becomes overripe, it did get bit soft. Easy to grow. Will grow for farmers market.

Id marry this melon
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

What are the pros? Cute, soft flesh, delicious!

What are the cons? None

Review:

This melon tasted really good! It's small, just a bit larger than a softball, but the flesh is really soft and flavorful. I only got a couple in my garden, but I think that's my fault, and due to insufficient watering. I will definitely grow this again.
