Where are the Melons? part 2

Blacktail Watermelon cut-up

Verdict on my first Blacktail Mountain picked last night?

No maiden swooned.

No that there are many maidens around here…

It was good but not great. It could have used a few extra days of ripening: it was still growing (weighting at 5 pound 14 oz on the vine, 5 lb 15 oz off the vine), and the closest tendril really was not dried out.

Patience is sometime not my forte…

As there are several other fruits out there, there is hope that I will pick one that is a “quintessential watermelon” and that I will learn when to pick them.
