Have you ever grown these melons?
I ordered many heirloom seeds from Baker's...mostly to experiment. But finding information about the individual variety is difficult going. Mainly I'm looking for specific characteristics, such as vigorous grower, vs compact. prone to bugs, not very happy on the ground, needs a trellis, dropped it melons, melons cracked, leaves wilty, tastess like cotton candy, tastes like the chicken house, ect. ect.
Gurney's Giant (for fun)
Pear - (not the pepper also nicknamed Pear Melon)
Thanks so much for any input.
