Default Which Small Melon to Grow?

For those who have grown either Golden Jenny or Sleeping Beauty, what are your opinions on production and flavor? Even better if you've grown both. Thanks in advance.

Golden Jenny is a a recent development from Jenny Lind. I have grown Jenny Lind many times over the years finding it to be a very good flavored melon. There is about 1 or 2 days of peak ripeness after which the melons rapidly break down. I may have to give Golden Jenny a try.

Thanks. Golden Jenny has really good reviews. I'm leaning towards that one.

Did anyone grow Alibaba watermelon? Or is it just a variety known in Europe? I'd like to try it, but I haven't found anyone offering seeds.
