Honeycomb Melon (F1 Hybrid, 78 Days)

Honeycomb is very fragrant, as is typical for a honeydew melon. Large for a fairly early maturing variety with many exceeding 6 pounds. Known for its high yield, around six per hill. Flavor is enhanced by a super high sugar content. 

20 seeds

PLANTING

Cucumis melo

Germination: 4-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/2" deep

Sowing Indoors: 3-4 weeks before last frost. Provide 70-85ºF soil temperature. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot. Sowing into individual biodegradable peat/cow pots reduces root damage when transplanting. Transplant after last frost, 36" apart.

Sowing Outdoors:  Sow after last frost when soil temperature is over 70ºF. Sow 2-3 seeds every 36", thin to the strongest seedling. 

How much does a packet plant: 18-20 foot single row, 5-6 hills

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 ripe.

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.

    Honeycomb melon

    The melon has been planted and now trying to make it through the strange weather. The seeds have so far performed well.

    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!
