Best honeydew I've ever grown


This melon grew well, despite a hot, dry climate, I watered it well and left it to do it's own thing. It tolerted that I am not the most attentive weeder, and the melons were sweet and refreshing. None of them even made it into my kitchen, they all got cracked open and eaten while we were working in the garden.
