What are the pros? Neat Yellow "Painting" on skin
What are the cons? NA
We grew 15 melon types in 5 gallon containers last summer. This one got a thumbs up from all our taste-testers (including my husband's coworkers), except me--but I have learned this year that apparently I don't care for honeydew type melons...I will also note that those who recommended it, LOVED it and thought it was much more than just ok. It took 24 days from the time the vine sprouted for it to flower and 70 days from sprouting to our first ripe melon. For those who might want to start early indoors, at 29 days from sprouting, the vine measured 30 inches long. This melon slips on its own. Our melons weighed 1 pound, 5 ounces and 1 pound, 9 ounces. The first melon had a fragrance that was only discernible close-up, but the second had a stronger fragrance (cooler weather?). These melons were fuzzy, too. The kids got a real kick out of watching them grow. We ran out of growing time, but the plant was in the process of developing a second batch of fruit when the cold hit.

I planted nearly 30 varieties last year. This melon was beautiful and meltingly sweet and delicious. It was one of the earliest too. When totally ripe it will slip from its stem, however, it is best to pick a few days before it slips. The melon might begin to over ripen on the inside if you wait to long to harvest. When the blossom end begins to give when pressed, is a good sign it is ready to harvest. Then you can place it in your kitchen while it continues to ripen and soften evenly. Chill and wow your family and friends. Idaho nights last year were 50's all summer. I used raised beds, black plastic mulch and drip irrigation. It produced wonderfully. A definite favorite.
