  • Planting Instructions

    When to plant:

    • Don’t plant your melon seeds until the soil is consistently above 70 Degrees F.

    How to plant:

    • Before planting, amend your soil with compost or aged manure so the melons have adequate nutrition.
    • When transplanting, give your melon seeds 36 to 40 inches of space so they can spread out.

    How to harvest:

    • Look for the rind color turning from green to yellow or tan. Harvest your melon when it is easy to pull from the vine, but not falling off.


    *Melons will generally flower before they bear fruit - this is normal and isn’t an indication that you won’t receive fruit! Pests and diseases are somewhat common with melons, so consistent attention is best.

excelent and easy

I grew 2 kinds of melons as a test, the hands down winner was the Hales best. This is very good for a new gardener. I felt they were easy to grow and they were as good or better than in the store and the same size you would get at the store. You will get such a kick out of watching them grow. I grew them on a trelis, no bending.You will give thanks to the Lord when you pick it from your garden. It is the best.
