90 days to harvest Cucumis melo

Dear Friends. This melon. Is utterly luscious.

We had heard about Organic Sharlyn Melon for years and indeed, she's an early melon for short seasons, undaunted by cool nights, that ripens to a white flesh that melts in your mouth with an exquisite pineapple sweetness. But here's the thing: A week before her flesh is white she's tinged tangerine in the center and lime on margin with a bright, tropical honeydew flavor, firm yet tender and delightfully juicy. What does this mean? The optimal window to harvest this melon is over one week! This is almost unheard of; we were deliciously sticky for all of August and well into September.

Organic Sharlyn Melon

90 days to harvest Cucumis melo

Description

Dear Friends. This melon. Is utterly luscious.

We had heard about Organic Sharlyn Melon for years and indeed, she’s an early melon for short seasons, undaunted by cool nights, that ripens to a white flesh that melts in your mouth with an exquisite pineapple sweetness. But here’s the thing: A week before her flesh is white she’s tinged tangerine in the center and lime on margin with a bright, tropical honeydew flavor, firm yet tender and delightfully juicy. What does this mean? The optimal window to harvest this melon is over one week! This is almost unheard of; we were deliciously sticky for all of August and well into September.

One of the most challenging aspects of growing melons is simply knowing when to harvest them (can I hear an amen?!) and Sharlyn makes it easy. As soon as her green netted rind begins to blush gold, she is dreamily delectable. For more tips and tutorials like this delivered straight to your inbox, sign up here!

To harvest even more and earlier melons, grow them under hoops  and  floating row cover  until they flower. This allows them to grow faster while also protecting them from the voracious cucumber beetles transmitting bacterial wilt.
