HALES BEST MELON (75 days heirloom)

1

Germ 4-10 days
Heirloom pre 1923
Reliable and classic melon with an ideal flavor. Oval, 7” by 6” sized fruits have thick walls with aromatic, sweet and juicy creamy texture flesh. 20 seeds

PLANTING:

Indoors- Individual biodegradable peat/cowpots 1/2” deep, 3-4 weeks before last frost with soil temperature 70 degrees. Transplant 36” apart after last frost without disturbing the roots.

Outdoors- 1/2” deep after last frost in warm soil at least 70 degrees.

Harvest- Look for the following signs as it does take some practice on telling when they are ready to harvest. The skin tone changes and netting becomes heavy, the ends soften, they will slip from the vines or a gentle tug will pull it away from the vine, a crack develops around the stem, the closet tendril to the stem dries, and the aroma increases when ripening.

Tips- Plant in fertile soil amended with compost or well rotted manure and keep well watered. They benefit from growing on black plastic and by using row covers for weed, insect control, and more rapid growth.

Moonflower germination

Sorry but the moonflower seeds did not germinate well for me. Only three plants made it.
