Melon - Rocky Ford Green - Cucumis melo

Tender Annual Heirloom. Introduced in 1881, this heirloom variety is a green-fleshed melon. It's also called Nutmeg due to its spicy flavor and outstanding aroma. Early vines produce fruits over 5" in diameter weighing 2-3 lb. A great variety for backyard and market gardens.

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? Many melons originated in the Middle East. Ancient Romans and Egyptians are known to have enjoyed muskmelons and cantaloupes.
