Mine's an old timer called Dr. Jaeger's. Bite into it and it tastes like a honey coated sunbeam. Freezes nicely, too. After I found this variety at Shumway's, all others were mediocre. What's your favorite?
We planted crenshaw and casaba this year. How do we know when they are ripe? We like Hale cantaloupe the best. We started them in the greenhouse and transplanted to the garden in late June. We are finally getting our summer rains so they are very prolific.
