HOW TO GROW MELON

Start indoors 3–4 weeks before last frost, plant out 2 weeks after last frost. Do not over water. Direct sow 1-2 weeks after last frost date. Sow in rows or thin to 2-3 plants per hill. Melons are heat lovers, and require warm springs and warm nights. In cooler climates, use plastic mulch to increase the soil and air temperature. Using floating row covers also helps. Heavy feeder, thrive in well-decayed organic matter or compost. Moist well-drained soil is important in early stages of pollination. After fruit set, do not water unless the soil is very dry and leaves begin to wilt. Best flavor produced in dry weather. Fruit is mature when fruit turns color and slips from the vine. Soil pH 6-7.5. Hardiness zones 4. Annual.

Days from maturity calculated from the date of seeding. Average 1,260 seeds per ounce. Average 15M seeds per acre. Federal germination standard: 75%. Usual seed life: 5 years. Isolation distance for seed saving: 1/2 mile.

The earliest-ripening Eastern-type cantaloupe. Developed for far northern, coastal, and mountain climates. Gardeners in these difficult, cool-weather areas often grow their first ripe melons ever, using this variety. The oblong, orange-fleshed fruits have light netting and average about 2–3 lb, size varies. Melons are sweet with average flavor. An open-pollinated precursor to newer hybrids, released in 1966 by the late Prof. Meader, Univ. of New Hampshire. Tags: Harvest: Early, Color: Orange, Shape: Elongated, Specialty: Cool Climate, Season: Summer, Certification: Organic.
