The following were the days to maturity for 'Billeberga' melons (Cucumis melo).
Billeberga melons were a small and highly fragrant melon with very thin skin. I had high hopes that they would do well in a short season but it appears that they are better suited to longer summers. The plants got covered by rampant pumpkin vines so perhaps could have produced a lot earlier if they had more sunlight.
