HONEYCOMB MELON (F1 hybrid 78 days)


Germ 4-10 days
Honeycomb is very fragrant, as is typical for a honeydew melon. Large for a fairly early maturing variety with many exceeding 6 lbs. Known for its high yield, around six per hill. Flavor is enhanced by a super high sugar content. 20 seeds


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.

Best honeydew I've ever raised!

I have yet to taste a honeydew sweeter than these! Without fertilizing, only one hill (3 vines) produced 12 full sized melons with the largest bigger than a basketball. The vines produced a second round of 8 melons before frost!
