Earlichamp Cantaloupe/Melon Seeds 1405. Hybrid.

Approx. 10 seeds/pkt (35 seeds/gram)

Replaces Earligold as our earliest orange-fleshed cantaloupe. Has a great tasting, lusciously thick flesh, an intoxicating aroma and very high Brix (sugar) content. Excellent disease resistance and large fruit size averaging 2-3 kg (4.4-6.6 lbs) weight and a 20 x 18 cm (7.5″ x 6″) oval shape.

How to Grow

Select a south facing, wind-sheltered site and sow 5 seeds 2.5 cm (1″) deep per hill. Space hills 1.5-2 m (4-6′) apart. Thin to 3 to 4 plants per hill. In short season areas, start seeds in peat/paper pots indoors 4 weeks before plant out time. Seeds need a warm soil to germinate properly. Do not sow into soil cooler than 21 C (70 F). Keep the melon vines evenly watered throughout the growing season. A packet of hybrid melon contains 10 seeds, enough for 2 hills.
