Melon - Hearts of Gold - Cucumis melo

Tender Annual Heirloom. Hearts of Gold has an aromatic, sweet, deep-orange flesh. The fruit is thick and firm with a small cavity. It is heavily netted with medium ribbing. The fruit grows nearly round to 6_" in diameter weighing up to 4_" lb. The plant is vigorous, extremely productive, and blight resistant.

Soil & Water: Melons like moderately rich, well-drained soils with plenty of phosphorous and potassium and a pH of 6.0-6.8. For flavorful fruits, melons need moderate water as seedlings, low water before transplanting, moderate water during growth, and low, even water during fruit development.

Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 2-3 weeks before the last frost or seed directly after the last frost. Melons need plentiful heat to develop; use plastic mulch and row covers in cooler climates.

Harvesting & Storage: Melons are ripe when the rind changes color to yellow and gentle pressure separates the stem from the vine. Melons can store in the refrigerator for about a week, if you can keep from eating them that long!

Did You Know? The first flowers to appear on the vines are male, and drop naturally. The later flowers are female and form the fruit.
