Don't plant squash next to muskmelons, unless you want squash bugs eating your melons, too. I've had it happen twice, including this year with a squash that I previously though squash bugs didn't like much. (But, apparently, they'll eat it if they don't have anything else nearby.) Anyway, the...read more

This is from Kirkman melon seeds, but it seems to have been crossed with Torpeda, by some of its qualities. I wonder why it's not striped, though. I guess Kirkman's rind must be dominant, except for Torpeda's netting seems dominant. Anyway, it wasn't as sweet as its parents. It was firm (not ...read more

Here are pictures of some Metki Dark Green Serpent melons from my prolific caged plant in 2017 (which had little water and no black plastic). It's one of my favorite things that I've ever grown. I think caging it helped, though, as did growing it in a good spot of ground. The fruits stayed good ...read more

Also see this thread: http://www.growspice.com/Honeycomb-x-Torpeda-F1-tc496.html Some hours ago, I opened a Honeycomb F2 melon. It was very sweet (and good), except closer to the rind where it was darker green. It wasn't perfectly round, but unevenly round is the closest description. The rind...read more

In 2015, I grew Healy's Pride with black plastic, and got one large, netted, long, orange-fleshed fruit with great flavor. This year, I'm growing it from seeds I saved, with black plastic and a cage to support it. It grew at least four large fruits (larger than in 2015). The first one ripened...read more

I grew Delicious 51 from Everwilde Farms . I knew from the picture of it where I bought it that it was probably a cross, but I wanted to try it anyway. It grew a fruit that looked like a Charentais melon (but it tasted very delicious in a way that the Charentais melon I grew this year did not, a...read more

The turban melon split open, probably a while ago by the look of it. I started fermenting the seeds and used the rest to enrich soil, since it seemed unsafe to eat. I'm fermenting the seeds since they have a whole lot of gel. Since that trait seems recessive my plant probably isn't a cross (unle...read more

I grew Honeycomb F1 last year and saved the seeds (at least one of which got cross-pollinated by Torpeda). I grew the cross-pollinated seed this year, and it grew these two fine fruits, which were quite striped earlier in the season. They slipped from the vine when ripe, surprisingly. I don't re...read more

I'm growing seeds that I was told were Charley's Pride. However the fruits didn't match the description—but I think that may just be because the plants are struggling with the growing conditions. The fruits are undersized, and not all of them are striped. They should be quite large and striped. ...read more

My trellised Huerfano Bliss honeydew melon set at least two fruits (which are a fair size already).

This tasted phenomenal. The initial taste was like a good cantaloupe. Then like a second later, a whole new taste shockingly burst into my mouth powerfully! It's hard to describe, but it was very unique. It was sweet and good. It was savory, too. Definitely a melon I'd recommend. Fairly early, t...read more

Here's the second fruit of the Noir de Carmes volunteer that I harvested. The first was bigger. I harvested two tiny ones, today. The pictured fruit was very good. The first one tasted a lot like standard cantaloupe, but over-ripe. The tiny ones were not very sweet.
