This is a very sweet melon from Burpee that I was able to find as seedlings this spring at my local nursery. We had a lot of rain all season and melons really don't want rain or watering when the fruit is getting ripe or they lose taste. Not a problem with Sugar Cube. The sweetest and best tasting melons I have been able to grow in my garden.

Very disease free. No powdery mildew problems. I will be growing these again next season.
