A flavorful melon with sweet juicy thick orange flesh. All melons need a warm area to grow.  Supply plenty of water when the plant is growing, flowering and setting fruit.  Once fruit develops reduce water to get sweeter fruit. Harvest only when ripe.  The fruit will not ripen off of the vine.  You can tell if it is ready if there is a slight crack in the vine where the fruit attaches and the fruit comes off easily from the vine with finger pressure.  Fruit averages 5 lbs.
