This melon is called big lumpy. An early July set on a CCx JBD that I lost the label on. Probably my 187, it could be off my 179 too. I will never know for sure. Usually I would have bypassed this melon for a better shaped one. But the darn thing stood out to me with it's good growth and I am glad I kept it, because for some reason the bees didn't do their job again until about ten days later when I finally had a decent amount of sets to choose from. I had a really long one on the main vine that was about ten days younger. It was a very hard choice to make. But I wanted the older one despite it's flaws. It is fairly close to the stump. Maybe 8'. THis plant shows the characteristic striped longer melons with the dark rind. I prefer that look. My other two plants really look like Black Diamonds. I wonder what color the seeds will be.
