Melons come in many types, colors, shapes and sizes and some have a sweet, juicy flesh. Whether you grow cantaloupe, honeydew or a variety of specialty melons from seed, this delicious fruit is a top performer in home gardens.

Growing Tips: In short season areas, sow seed into peat pots indoors at 80°F. soil temperature 2-3 weeks before transplanting outdoors. Protect young plants from frost or damaging winds using row covers. Melons are ripe when fruit easily separates from vine. For those that have limited space, try experimenting growing melons on a sturdy trellis. When melons appear to be about half grown, insert each melon into some sort of cradle (old stocking) and tie the cradle securely to the trellis. This will help support the weight of the melon on the vine as it gets heavier. Note: All melons are insect pollinated. Do not use insect sprays during flowering.

Maturity dates are from transplant and are to be used as a comparison guide only.

Untreated melon seed varieties are listed.
