Plant seeds directly in the garden. Plant the seeds 1 when soil has warmed up. The seeds may rot and not sprout if the soil is too cool. Germination is improved when soil temperature is above 60 F. Plant the seeds in hills. Plants grow 1 ft tall and vines spread up to 10 ft.

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.

Fertilizer Requirements:

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.

We have tried several cantaloupe varieties and like this one best. It grows well here in North Texas.
