80-85 days to harvest Cucumis melo

Lusciously sweet with a wide harvest window, enjoy Moonglow both as a green, firm-flesh, bright citrus ‘honeydew’ melon as well as melt-in-your-mouth, white-flesh brown sugary sweet melon 7 to 10 days later. We crossed two of our favorite honeydew style melons, Haogen and Model, and marvelous gifts are emerging! Expect 3 to 4 fruits per plant, each 3 to 4 pounds, 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 ~

Moonglow v.1 is part of Fruition’s See(d)ing the Change project, as are are YOU! Together, we are sowing the world we dream of, where deliciousness and diversity are embraced, amplifying the beauty and abundance that is resistance as well as resilience. Learn more here!

Organic Moonglow v.1 Melon

Planting Method: Direct Sow Only

When to sow: Sow 1–2 weeks after last frost when soil is above 70°F

Sowing and seedling care: Sow 3 seeds every 3-4 feet. Thin to 1 plant per group when seedlings are less than 2 inches tall. 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. Ample water during pollination & fruit set essential.

Seed Depth: 1 inch     Sun Needs: Full

Days to Germination: 5 days at 75°F; 8 days at 60°F

Spacing after thinning: 3-4 feet

Days to Harvest: 80-88

Height: Full 6′ + vine.

Harvest: 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. Fruit may be ripe when rind on ground is yellow or softening, too. Rich melon scent is also a hint, especially on the blossom end. Split melon? Eat it right away!
