Tigger Melon

90 days. The most amazing looking melon we have grown. The fruits are vibrant yellow with brilliant fire-red, zigzag stripes (a few may be solid yellow), simply beautiful! They are also the most fragrant melons we have tried, with a rich, sweet, intoxicating aroma that will fill a room. The white flesh gets sweeter in dry climates, mild tasting. Small in size, the fruits weigh up to 1 lb. The vigorous plants yield heavily, even in dry conditions. This heirloom came from an Armenian market located in a mountain valley.

What are the pros? Easy, Nice Smell, Many Fruit

What are the cons? Taste

Review:

This melon is super easy to grow. I put one seed in a cinder block and it took over 10ftx6ft of fence. Beautiful foliage with fast developing very cool looking melons. The melons smell so good, I was so excited to try one... unfortunately they don't taste very good. They don't taste bad either, its just that for the aroma you expect them to taste incredible and they taste incredibly bland. I mostly just juiced them to add volume to other juices. I enjoyed growing these and will probably plant them again, but I wouldn't recommend them if you're growing for flavor.

What are the pros? Colorful, easy to grow

What are the cons? Bland, not sweet at all

Review:

These were easy to grow and were very colorful, but if you're growing them to eat they aren't sweet at all. They taste almost like a cucumber. Fun to grow but I do not recommend them to someone looking to grow melons because they didn't taste like a sweet melon.

What are the pros? Smell, taste, crunch

What are the cons? not prolific

Review:

I tried growing this a few years back in S. Utah(7a) and only got 2-3 bland melons. I threw the last few seed I had into the garden last spring, not expecting much (we have moved to central Oregon, 5b). Imagine my surprise when I smelled something lovely and found some ripe fruit under the leaves. The taste was wonderful, sweet and mild. They did not last long once picked(maybe 2-3days in the fridge), but eaten fresh they were perfect. They were also a bit of a show piece, so pretty!

What are the pros? Pretty

What are the cons? low germination and odor

Review:

The germination rate on these were poor but once you get them going they are easy to grow. I tested these out in native soil, in raised bed garden soil, and in homemade compost. The ones in the compost by far did the best. They tolerated our hot summer (105 F average temp) here in TX and 'survived' but did not grow the best until it cooled down to below 98 F, then the plants took off nicely. I didn't water a lot but when I did water I did a good deep watering. The fruits that grew in compost were larger then any I've seen in pictures on the internet. They were flavorful, crisp, but not very sweet. Just sweet enough. It honestly tasted just like a cantaloupe to me....delicious with a nice salty cheese paired together. They are very pretty once ripe. At first smell, they smell good and very aromatic. But the smell becomes overwhelming. I had a few ripe ones on my counter and when you walked into the house it had a strong smell that was traced to the melons.
