I haven't grown that one, but for a small melon -- both vine and plant -- that rapidly matures, I can recommend Minnesota Midget. Good taste but not as intensely sweet as supermarket muskmelons. Vines get up to about 4' long with small leaves and produce about 3 melons per vine.
I like to research commercial seeds and plants before buying them. I have noticed that seed companies like Parks and some rose sellers post unrealistic photos and descriptions of their plants. It makes me distrust the companies.
I am moving this year, so I am not planting any veggies except maybe some fall greens. I would like to find some short season melons to grow. I'll try some of the heirloom varieties mentioned, but am still curious about the hybrid cukemelon.
I managed to put my strawberries in windowboxes. It was a challenge to separate the real strawberries from the wild ones that the birds planted. I can only tell them apart when they are flowering. My real strawberries have white flowers - the wild ones have yellow.
I'll have to work out a better strawberry panting system after I move.
i do have to agree about the photo manipulation in the name of selling their products, have you ever noticed that "blue" varieties of flowers have had their colors in the sellers photo altered to be perfectly cobalt blue, or something black (which is realistically a very dark purple-red), in their photo is edited to be pure jet black. Same with food plants--over "blinging" (if you will) the photo to draw in and entice potential customers
