What are the pros? flavor, size
What are the cons? doesn't last more than a day
This is an amazing tasting melon when ripe, size is huge for a melon and the flavor is over the top. It has a tendency to split within a few days of being perfectly ripe. You have to watch this variety like a hawk! Once picked this melon will only last 1- 2 days. It will literally liquefy if kept longer than just a couple days. We have picked them one day, left them on the counter and the next day found a watery mess. We continue to grow this melon because, even though it doesn't last long it is by far the best melon ever. I will take the downsides with all the upsides of this one!

What are the pros? great taste
What are the cons? needs hot weather
We grew this melon on our farm for the first time this year. We cut the first melon at our weekend farmstand and passed it around to customers. Everyone LOVED this melon. It was probably one of the best tasting melons we've grown. Very sweet with unique flavor and great texture. Our weather then turned cold for several weeks (50 degrees at night and 70 degrees during the day), and every melon we harvested during that time tasted terrible. The sugar content during those cooler weeks was very low, making the melon inedible, which tells us that this melon really needs consistently hot weather to reach its potential. We don't like devoting space to a crop that won't tolerate cooler summers, but if we lived in a hotter section of the state we would probably grow a ton of these. They were that good.

What are the pros? everything
What are the cons? short shelf life
There are truly one of the best tasting muskmelons you can grow. The person who said it wasn't sweet most likely picked it too early because this melon is extremely sweet. I have grown it two years in a row. Once this melon gets close to maturity, you should definitely be checking on it every single day.You have to pick it right when it is ripe or it will turn to mush. Also don't let it sit on your counter too long, put it in the fridge. That being said, it is definitely worth growing. The melons are large and the flavor it outstanding. My plants average 3-4 melons per plant but considering their large size, I am very happy with production.

What are the pros? Forever. My Garden. TN Melon
What are the cons? short ripe period. meh.
A Tennessee Melon for a Tennssee gardner. Works for me. Saw this melon and wanted to give it a try. This will now forever be grown in my garden. SUPER sweet melon! I harvested 3 or 4 melons off the vine, (because I didn't plant enough) and all were phenomenal. The largest one was taken in mid-summer and consumer around a campfire. Great find! Just be prepared to use them pretty soon after harvest. because, they don't hang on too long before going bad.
