    Sweet Delight has been a dud for me during a 3 year trial. When conditions are right it is a big beautiful honey dew. However it is very disease susceptible. When it survives to fruiting stage, it cracks and attracts every critter from two counties. Few good fruits get to ripe stage as it has a long season (100 day+). It just is not adaptable to my growing conditions.
