Growing Directions:

Sow seeds when the threat of frost in your area has fully passed, as they thrive in warm weather. They also thrive in full sun, and reach their full growth potential in soil that is quite moist but also well-drained. Adding compost such as mulch to the soil can assist in their growth as well. Sow seeds with the pointed part of the seed directed down to promote root growth. They should each be sown in small individual hills half an inch deep, with at least four feel between plants. Throughout the growing process, it is beneficial to trim off parts of the vine that are producing flowers or smaller melons. The plant can then direct its energy to producing the largest and juiciest melons possible. Water the vine often, making sure not to get the leaves wet which can cause disease for the plant. When the melons are ready for harvest, they will be a golden shade and easily taken off of the vine. This will occur after around 85-120 days.
