What are the pros? Perfect Texture, no disease
What are the cons? Nothing
I grew these late from starts that had overgrown their containers, I put them in a brand new raised bed about 18" apart. Overall the soil drained well but was poorly conditioned with less than 1/3 organic material in the way of composted cow manure the remaining soil was peat moss and perlite. The plants were largely neglected, planted in full hot sun (extremely hot and humid summer) and went through 2 week periods of drought to where the soil was bone dry. Nothing was sprayed on them and no fertilizers were applied. Despite all of this, these produced nice melons on 12-14' vines which were from time to time picked out of the walk way and tossed back into the raised bed. I had 5 plants total all contained within a 3'x8' raised bed which also grew an enormous cherry tomato plant and peppers. Each vine produces 2-3 melons weighing between 3-6 lbs which I find to be the perfect size, sugary sweet and very crisp and juicy; not mealy at all! Saved seed can't wait to grow em again!!!
