 Melon – Honey Dew

Cucumis melo

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.

    Quick growing vine stood up to the tough conditions of the farm. Tasty flavor! We kept ours in the fridge for weeks with no issues.
