    I will say this...if you want cantaloupe....go with the Pecos seeds. I actually live in pecos and due to the lack of workers and high gas prices were gonna have a very small crop again this year. They are always very sweet and juicy....almost like candy

    My mother was always very VERY picky with her cantaloupe. The Pecos variety may not be giant like Hale's Best but the flavor doesn't even compare! AND, the plants I have going right now were started from seeds my mother saved from her best tasting cantaloupes over 8 YEARS ago! She passed away Dec 2007 so I was happy to find seeds from her that survived our housefire and absolutely THRILLED they actually grew.....lol.

    Quote:Dunno yet....lol. They are putting on like crazy but so far they are still small. Glad to see I'm not the only tomatillo lover here. Can't wait to try the purple and think the purple will make some awesome green chile salsa.... [​IMG]
