How to Grow Hales Best Jumbo Melons

When to Plant Melon Seeds

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

Where to Plant Melon Seeds

Plant seeds in area of full sun and in nutrient rich soil.

How to Plant Melon Seeds

Before planting, amend your soil with compost or aged manure so the melons have adequate nutrition. Melons are vining plants, so form small hills in your rows with a few inches of spacing. Place 3-5 seeds per hill and water area. Melons require a lot of water so make sure they get watered regularly. 

When transplanting, give your melon seeds 36 to 40 inches of space so they can spread out.

How to Harvest Melon

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.

  1. Find your seeds

    Find the seeds that you have been looking for with this seller. If they don't have them then you don't need them. I recommend them highly.

  2. 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.
