Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

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.
