I harvested our first melon of the year yesterday - a little late!
I don't grow melons very often but I chucked these seeds in last minute, then didn't plant them on quick enough and in the end they got chucked in a planting bucket and left in the corner of the greenhouse.
For their neglect they've rewarded me with a few miniature melons. I could smell this one was ripe as soon as I went in the greenhouse.
They're only tiny, about the size of a cricket balls but the perfume coming from it is really strong.
the variety is bred to be small and early to ripen in a short season. I think this was probably a day or two over ripe but still really tasty, the girls ate it straight away, with big dribbles down chins!
I'll certainly be growing this type again and maybe even try them outside next year or under a row cover. I've saved the seeds so I'll probably be giving some away to friends and in the seed swap as well.
Do you grow melons? What variety do you grow?
