  • 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.
