Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in late spring/early summer after last frost in a warm, sunny location. Soil temperatures below 50F can slow growth. Consider using black plastic and fabric row covers to speed soil warming. Sandy or lighttextured soils that warm quickly in spring are best. Hill planting: Form soil into a 1' diameter mound 3 to 4" tall. Space mounds 4-6' apart. On each mound plant 3 seeds. Row planting: See spacing info in chart. Harvest melons when the side leaves and tendrils turn yellow and fruit are about 1 pound. As fruit ripens, it produces a nice aroma at the blossom end.
