Love these
Easy to Grow 4.5
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Easy to grow and care for

What are the cons? Knowing when to harvest

Review:

I was thrilled the first year I grew them, until I tasted them: they were pretty flavorless. But I found that if left until they fall off the vine, then left for another day, they have a lovely melon flavor and are perfect for a snack or with lunch. I halve, seed and eat with a spoon. They're easy to grow, vigorous, love to climb and are productive. I haven't been able to grow them for a few years and am looking forward to having them again.

What are the pros? beautiful and prolific

What are the cons? small amount of edible flesh

Review:

Very prolific, very cute, very little taste. It has been a wet year, so perhaps that is the problem, but these require a lot of peeling and seeding for a incredibly bland reward. I will not be planting them again, even though they do look beautiful and grew very well.

What are the pros? grows well

What are the cons? not enough flesh to enjoy

Review:

The small melons are robust growers and taste like a mild version of cantaloupe. The issue is that there isn't enough meat or flesh to really enjoy the melons. It's mostly seed and skin. It was great to try something new, but if you are limited on garden space and you want to use your space for serious food production, this melon may not be the right choice.

What are the pros? Beautiful and prolific

What are the cons? Bland and tiny

Review:

I absolutely LOVED displaying these gorgeous little balls for the short time that they would last on the counter. They grew in abundance but became wearisome inasmuch as they were so small. They had very little flavor at all and I ended up tediously scooping them into smoothies in order not to waste them. I was actually thankful when the season was over; I will surely never plant them again. Our favorite melons are Golden Honeymoon Honeydew and Orange-Fleshed Honeydew.

What are the pros? Cute,easy to grow, unique

What are the cons? Mouth-tingling

Review:

Basically have the same review as everyone else except these melons make my mouth tingle. Apparently this in an oral allergy syndrome reaction. The body mistakes the melon proteins for ragweed and grass pollen proteins according to an internet search, and reactions seem to occur in people with seasonal allergies. I have no problem eating any other kind of melon, so beware hayfever sufferers.
