I have this melon growing and within my 10 day absence where I had to go on a trip, these melons went from flowers to 4 inch sized melons already and they are not even done yet! I have 5 of them growing at the moment and more flowers present. I can’t wait to taste them! Mary’s heirloom seeds never disappoint!
I've been growing these for two years now and these are my all time favorite melon Mary offers! The flesh when ripe smells of pineapple and the flesh is sop juicy and sweet, its surreal to experience! First time i grew them in 5 gallon buckets, second time in a raised bed both with epic results! easy to grow, just give plenty of room and remember when they're ripe they fall off so watch them!
