Overview

Features

  • Abundant cropping
  • Versatile fruit
  • Easy to grow

Sow

For early sowing, raise in pots of Yates Seed Raising Mix in a well-lit, protected spot. Transplant after 3-4 weeks. For direct sowing press 3-4 seeds into mounds of moist soil 1m apart. Later thin to the two strongest plants.

Care

Plant in a sunny, well-drained position. Add Yates Blood & Bone before planting. Keep well watered until fruit starts to ripen, then reduce watering to sweeten before picking. Harvest melons when stem begins to break away from fruit. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.

Hint

Great companion plant for corn. Fruit develops best flavour if left to mature for a few days after picking.
