MINNESOTA MIDGET MELON (60 days)

7

Germ 4-10 days
Compact 3’ vines produce a quantity of 4” cantaloupes which mature very early. Has an excellent sweet flavor. 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.

It's small, but it's a real cutie!

I have always loved this melon. The small size makes it perfect for one person, and in my house, I'm the only one who eats melon. The taste is sweet; never bitter or green

Most Reliable for the North

I've been growing these for about 6 years in zone 5a. Other melons have been hit-or-miss, depending on the weather. These vines produce numerous fruits that are a little larger than a big grapefruit. The flesh is juicy, slightly soft, and very sweet. Short season growers should start them indoors, about 4-6 weeks before planting out, and plant them mound style with black **** barrier over the mound to help warm the soil.
