They are really very heavy for their size and very juicy inside. I am really surprised at how juicy they are given that I had to be very careful about how much I watered due to my limited water supply. They have that special fragrance that rock melons have ( that not everyone likes but I love) but a somewhat crisper flesh than shop bought rock melons.
I would certainly grow this little fellow again. It has proved itself in a difficult climate, takes minimal space in the patch and I like the smaller fruit size and the crisper flesh.
Now I probably should have held this post over till Saturday when I could have joined Liz's Saturday Spotlight but I couldn't wait, I was just too excited. You see, these are my first ever melons. Pathetic I know...
Have you grown something this year for the first time? How did it go?
