Heirloom Melon Seeds

Heirloom melons are a real treat - much better than the ones from the grocery store! They slip from the vine with a little thumb pressure when fully ripe.

Sowing Melon Seeds

Sow melon seeds outdoors after the last frost date, 1/2" deep. Space 2' apart in rows. Or sow in hills spaced 4-6' apart. Thin to 3 plants per hill. Full sun.
