I hope to get eating melons in the patch soon, this year I am growing 'Harvest Moon' a seedless Sun moon and stars type. Also growing 'Iopride', 'Allsweet' and my old favorite 'Jubilee'. One thing I learned about using the Carolina Strongback rootstock is that you have to be careful when pruning off any rootstock re-growth. The strongbacks leaves look very similar to watermelon leaves. By accident I pruned off a couple of the desired melon's (scion) and left the Strongback. Oops.
