Hi, I have the Hearts of GoldHi, I have the Hearts of Gold muskmelon and the melons are about 3 pounds now; however, they are more football shaped than a ball, the rind is white (not yellow or green), netting is nowhere near pronounced, and the ribbing is very deep. No crack on the stem. They are a little smaller than a kid's sized soccer ball and have been this way for over 3 weeks now. Is this normal? Will they ripen soon?
