Soil Requirements:

Requires fertile slightly acid soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

Water well during dry and hot spells. Make sure plants get 1" water per week.

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Periodically apply Miracle Gro.

Harvest Tips:

Protect ripening melons from damp ground by placing them on boards. Cut melons carefully from plants to prevent damaging the vines.

These melons are easy and fun to grow. They're very prolific. It didn't take long at all to have vines full of baby melons. Knowing when to harvest is a breeze. They turn orange and fall off the vine when they're ready. They taste like a cantaloupe, but not as sweet. Tigger melons have definitely earned a place in my garden.
