Cantaloupe Seed Packets - Halona Hybrid


Days to Harvest: 68. A mouth-watering melon known for its earliness, rich salmon flesh and unbeatable sweet flavour. Fruits require lots of heat and sunshine to mature to full sweetness and deep colour. Served chilled with lemon or lime wedges, top with yogurt, or mix with watermelon balls for a tasty and attractive salad or dessert.

Sowing: Select a sunny, well-drained location and sow seeds in the late spring when soil has warmed. For an earlier crop, start seeds indoors 4-5 weeks before planting outdoors. For best results, loosen soil with spade or fork, fertilize with vegetable food and smooth with rake. Firm soil over seed and keep moist.

Comments: Keep soil moist and fertilize monthly. Mulch to conserve moisture. Pick when the blossom end is slightly springy and when the stem separates with a slight pull. For best flavour, ripen on the vine.
