I have grown these for 2 years now. If you get them at the right time, they are very sweet. For me, it's hard to tell when they are ripe. I have also grown Minnesota Midgets for many years, and they turn the classic gold/yellow and I have missed the moment with these melons before! I do recommend them, and will grow them again. Like the description says, watch for the transition from green to grey. Then they are at their peak. For me in Ohio, they are the last melons to ripen, and have been smaller than described.
