The oval fruit typically weighs between 6 lbs. and 8 lbs. Because of its vining growth habit, melon plants should be trellised to promote vertical growth, improve airflow, and keep the fruit off the ground. These heirloom melon seeds come from Mountain Valley Seed Co., a small, family-owned seed company known for supplying premium-quality seeds to both home growers and fresh market producers.
