Organic Hale's Best Jumbo Cantaloup

$3.29

Originally grown in California, this variety of melon has been around for over 100 years. It is known for its large size, delicate yet juicy flesh and aromatic nature.

Plant Preferences:

Melons love consistent heat. Cut back on watering as the fruit nears ripeness to prevent splitting and bland flavor. Consider growing under a row cover when plants are young to quicken growth and protect from insects.

When to Sow:

Sow seeds indoors about 4 weeks before the last frost date, or outdoors 1 to 2 weeks after.

Harvest:

Harvest ripe fruit when the ground spot has turned from white to yellow, the tendril hearest the fruit has dried, and you hear a “thunk” instead of a “tink” when tapped.

Days to Maturity:

90-100 days with full sun

Sowing Depth:

1/2”

Plant Spacing:

Space plants 24” apart. Melons require a lot of space to spread and can benefit from trellising.
