Best Tasting Cantaloupe Variety I Have Ever Grown
Reviewed By: Rick Saldana (Burley, ID)
If you're a Cantaloupe Lover looking for a "blow your socks off" melon variety, you have found it! The taste, texture and sweetness of SuperStar cantaloupes just can't be beat. Over the course of many years, I have grown just about every variety of cantaloupe I could find and SuperStars have always won the taste test. Each year, my neighbors wait in line to buy them and then cart them away six to eight at a time. Yes, they are that good! So much so, that I now no longer grow any other variety. Grow a few of these to maturity and you will find "Cantaloupe Heaven" in your first bite. You will not be disappointed!

Best Cantaloupe Ever!
Reviewed By: Brad (Middleton, Idaho)
I planted 3 mounds of this cantaloupe this year. They are coming off now and are by far the biggest and sweetest mellons I have ever had. They grew well here in Idaho and the plants produced MANY mellons. The flavor is just unbelievably mouth watering!!!

Willing to try again
Reviewed By: Dave (Westfield, MA)
I didn't know how to rate this melon. All the plants died of fungus about 2-3 weeks before picking. I also grew Sweet-n-early melon and Sugar baby watermelon. Both were untouched by the fungus. I will try again next year with the use of fungus sprays. I hope I will have better luck.

Superstar Indeed!
Reviewed By: Tamara (Plano, TX)
I have been planting this melon every year from the same packet of 2003 Gurney seeds, believe it or not. Given adequate space, they produce huge, very tasty melons with few, if any, problems. Two thumbs up.

The Best Overall Cantalope
Reviewed By: Shawn (McBain, Michigan)
These are large cantaloupes with very sweet and large enough to feed a family with one of them. They are easy kept for a couple of days after harvest with the same great taste.
