83-88 days to harvest Cucumis melo

Succulent and honey-sweet, Haogen also has a crisp citrus tang that sends shivers down our spines! Easy to grow in short seasons, Haogen’s green-orange skin blushes yellow when ripe, slipping off the vine. Expect 3 to 4 sweet, petite fruits per plant, each 3 to 4 pounds, perfect for a picnic…and if you eat the entire melon yourself, that’s just another thing we all have in common. Enjoy every bite!

And Friends! We save this seed (who’s saving who?!!) and you can, too! We hope our collective great grandchildren do, too ~

Harvesting melon is both art and science, and hardly an easy one. If the tendril on the stem opposite the fruit is brown and dry, you likely have a ripe melon. Rich melon scent is also a hint, especially on the blossom end. Split melon? Eat it right away!

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.
