I purchased the Fall Seed Collection for some container gardening this autumn and have been very pleased with the results. Germination rate was fantastic and I had to do much more thinning than I usually do from store-bought seeds. The little growing guide helped with varieties I haven't grown before (hello, kohlrabi). All of my plants are hardy and healthy and I'm already enjoying the early harvests. Looking forward to maturity on the longer growers. Will be buying the Granny's kitchen garden pack for spring. Thanks so much!
I planted several varieties over the past couple years. These have been the most reliable producers so far. Averaged 10-15 lbs. one larger one about 20. Nothing remotely close to 40 lbs. that’s ok. Huge ones are a pain to break down.
I planted a whole bunch of this to attract bees and butterflies. It grows like crazy. However I protected the seed with hay because my first round died because of the hot Florida sun and lack of rain lately.
We started these indoors in January. We transplanted them twice and finally out to our raised bed (full coastal sun). The plant is massive and the tomatoes are TASTY! The best little tomatoes we have ever had. We will likely plant them in a separate bed next year since they grow to such a large size and can crowd out other plants.

Crenshaw Melon Seeds
(Inodorus group) Crenshaw (110 days)
Parents were the Casaba and Persian melon.
A ripe Crenshaw is seductively spicy sweet with a green skin and luscious salmon colored flesh. I cannot believe how sweet a melon of this large size can be. I don't enjoy the flavor of cantaloupes, but can not get enough of this melon. The Crenshaw's texture is silky smooth and not at all granular like some melons can be. I was most surprised by the sweet honey flavor of the sumptuous flesh. What a fantastic summer treat!
This is a heat loving melon that has wonderfully vigorous vines. The Crenshaw produces fruit 6-8 pounds and occasionally, up to 10 pounds. Peak season for Crenshaw melons is August through September, with the fruit season beginning in July and ending in October.
