Melon – Honey Dew
Delicious and lightly sweet, honeydew makes a beautiful addition to your fruit salad. A great keeper that gets incredibly sweet while resting in your fridge or on your countertop.
Suggested Planting Requirements: Full sun is needed and high heat toward the end of the growing season can produce very sweet fruit. The pH level for melons should be 6.0-7.0 with soil that is fertile and well-drained. Melons tend to be shallow-rooted, so watering often and consistent is important. Plants can be potted and/or trellised and/or left to sprawl on the ground.
Growing Recommendations: Melons must be sheltered from cool winds and placed in the warmest area. The heat of ideally 90 degrees will condense the sugars.
Harvesting & Storage: Melons should be harvested at peak ripeness. The bottom of the melon that is not attached to the vine should omit a musky sweet smell when ready to harvest. They should be cut from the vine and handled very carefully.
