Hearts of Gold is a very good open pollinated melon. It is medium sized with golden flesh. Not quite as sweet as some of the hybrids and does not hold well after ripening, it is still an excellent home garden melon. 7/20/2011 While this melon was an excellent performer in Virginia, It does not do well under my current conditions in Georgia
