A tropical plant, melons can provide something of a challenge to the gardener in climates which are not hot. Does not like cool temperatures or even prolonged cloudiness. Start indoors or under cover--needs 80 degrees for germination--one month before planting out in warm, settled weather. Or sow outdoors after weather is warm. Provide plenty of water until fruit sets, then only enough to prevent wilting. Our melon varieties are chosen for great flavor and adaptability to less-than-perfect
conditions. See separate listing for watermelons.
