What are the pros? Flavor, hardshell
What are the cons? Hard to tell when to pick
I love Schoon's Hardshell. This is my all time favorite melon. I grew several this year, but unfortunately didn't get to eat a one. I was having a hard time telling when they were ready. The melons split on the blossom end and got buggy quick. The chickens feasted though. I haven't had this problem before so I'm curious why they didn't slip off the vine like I'm used to.
