Melon - Honeydew Green - Cucumis melo

Tender Annual Smooth, hard creamy white rind without netting or sutures. Averaging 8"-7" in diameter, and weighing 6 lb. Ripens to light gold, thick lime-green flesh, high sugar. Good for storage and shipping, small cavity. Good variety for the Pacific Coast.

Did You Know? The first flowers to appear on the vines are male, and drop naturally. The female flowers, which open later, have a swelling at the base that forms the fruit. After bees pollinate these female flowers, the fruit develops.

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!
