85 days to ripen. This Cantaloupe is exceptionally sweet, thick-walled, and the seed cavity is small, so you can enjoy more delicious, mouth-watering fruit! Grows and stays sweet in a wide variety of conditions.

~ planting ~

When to sow outside: 1 to 2 weeks after average last frost, and when temperatures are warm.
When to start inside: Recommended for cold winter climates. 4 to 6 weeks before average last frost. Seedlings don’t transplant well – use paper or pulp pots and transplant pots directly into soil.

~ harvesting ~

Harvesting at the right time is very important with melons. Commercial growers harvest before melons are ripe, forcing them to ripen off the vine, but, the last few days of ripening on the vine put a lot of sugars into the melon. Bottom line is that melons taste significantly better when vine ripened. How do you know when melons are ripe? These indicators: 1) The color between the surface netting is brown, not green. 2) A ripe melon will have a pleasant, fruity aroma at the blossom end. 3) A crack will form on the stem right near the point of attachment. This is called the “slip stage”, and in a few days, the melon will detach from the vine with little effort and pressure. If it is somewhat difficult to detach the fruit from the vine, the melon is not ready yet. Do not allow to over-ripen.

~ additional instructions ~
-  seeds are heirloom, open-pollinated, organic & non-gmo (unless noted otherwise).
