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? Beautiful fruit, good taste

What are the cons? Attractive to critters!

Review:

This is a really lovely variety of melon. I planted 5 seeds in a mound at the start of summer, of which 4 sprouted - though one died soon after and another got uprooted. They took quite a while to grow, but the vines really spread out and looked fantastic while they did so. The melons took about a week and a half to ripen on the vine from the dark green they started out as to the beautiful scarlet-orange you can see in the pictures - but one of them got stolen by an animal overnight! The fruits have a noticeable scent somewhere between cantaloupe and pineapple. They key to bringing that scent into its taste is to make sure you don't harvest them too early: I picked another melon right as it was starting to pull itself off of the vine, and it had a delicious taste like a rich, sweet cantaloupe - and one melon yielded quite a number of seeds. Will definitely re-plant next year, though on a lattice: the vines have little grabbers, and it's obviously a climbing plant.

What are the pros? Resilient, Tolerates heat

What are the cons? Slow to germinate

Review:

I bought these seeds several years ago, and they still had a decent germination rate. They seem to thrive in the heat here(we've already hit 110 degrees). The plant itself is absolutely gorgeous and produces large amounts of small, gorgeous, yellow flowers. I hand pollinate all my melons, and I have a couple of baby melons so far! I will edit when I get to taste them! Here's hoping the fruit is as yummy as the plant is beautiful!

What are the pros? Beautiful, Sweet smelling

What are the cons? Disappointing taste

Review:

We were super excited for this "melon". It is absolutely beautiful and smells amazing. It grew in our semi neglected garden in shade with no problem. We got 2 fruits from each plant. The taste is nothing special. Tastes like a cucumber so we were disappointed (Should have done more research on it). The only reason why I wouldn't recommend it is because the taste is underwhelming.

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.
