I've never grown melons before. This year I planted some watermelon, some green muskmelon, and some orange muskmelon.
This one is Edisto 47 and it is YUM good.
Fresh picked melons are lots juicier than store bought. You have to get ready and slice near the sink. Have a dish cloth handy.
We ate half of this one and cut the other half into bite sized chunks and froze them on a cookie sheet, then put them in a ZipLock freezer bag for later. They are okay frozen if you eat them while they're still icy cold and not completely thawed.
