When sowing, plant the seeds half an inch deep, with two to three feet between plants and three to five feet between rows. The Planters Jumbo cantaloupe will thrive in rich, sandy soil, with a pH level between 6.5 and 7.5. While the cantaloupe is growing, monitor the vine and pinch off any blossoms or smaller melons. By doing this, you can redirect the energy from the vine to the biggest fruits. When watering the vine, it’s best to do so at a low level. This will prevent the leaves from getting wet, which can cause and spread disease through the vine. When the Planters Jumbo cantaloupe melons are slightly golden, they should easily be pulled from the vine.
