I like the idea of disease resistant too. I believe the squash vine family is resistant to disease. I thinking acorn, butternut, and spaghetti squash.

I'm Growing Armenian Cucumbers there supposed to be more heat tolerant there producing good even with a bad case of PM, I just pulled my second planting of spaghetti squash the SVB got all three plants, I saw on the internet where they wrapped the vine with foil where it comes out of the soil then covers the bottom part with soil to stop the SVB from laying there egg, didn't happen the entry hole was above the foil which was up off the soil.

I bought one about 10 days ago.  I had never had one but I like to try new fruit, so I bought it.  I let it sit on my kitchen counter for 3 days, then I put it in my refrigerator for another 3 days; it started to get a bit soft.  I thought it was going to be like a cucumber but it was delicious like a cantaloupe.  I bought it for $1.29 per pound.  I placed the seeds in a bowl and later my husband gave them to the chickens.  I didn't check the label to see if it was imported or locally grown.

At lunch when we ate the melon, I regretted giving the chickens the seeds, and only buying one.

In the video in the harvest section(around 7:07), the plant appears to be wilting.  Maybe it was a hot day?  I wonder how many plants they have in their planter?

I bought some seeds, but I can't recall where. I had two plants grow up from direct seed, but forgot to water them, because it was the new part of my garden. so I have to restart. I hope they can stand Texas heat. it pretty humid in the Philippines.

I would love to know what these taste like, and what color flesh they have?  I grew sakatas sweet melons last year, mini honeydew mimic.  Edible flesh and rind!  Easily my winner for 2016....repeat.  It grew up a twisty pole in my tomato bed without coaxing.  Softball size fruits.  Delicious! If you like honeydew.  Problem free. Baker's Creek Seeds.
