Planting Tips:

Can be direct sown in warmer climates after soil temperatures reach 70, plant 3-4 seeds 1/2” deep in hills 3-4’ apart on rows 5-6’ apart.  Once established, thin to two strongest plants.  For cooler climates we prefer to start in pots in the greenhouse and transplant later when night time temperatures stay above 55 degrees.  Start seedlings 3 weeks before last frost.  Once seedlings are 4” tall and soil temperatures are 70, plant in rich loose soil.

Keep well watered until fruits are tennis ball sized and then water only if absolutely needed.  (We know organic farmers that never water them and grow amazinging melons, but a great deal depends on your soil.)

Remember, you must have a healthy population of pollinators like bees to get a good fruit set.

Seeding Rate:

4,500 plants/acre, aproximately 1/4-1/3 lb.

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
