How to Grow

Very similar to cantaloupe and muskmelon. Seeds require 5-10 days at a soil temperature of 24 C (75 F) to germinate – any lower and germination will be inhibited. Sow 6-8 seeds per hill, 12 mm (1/2″) deep in hills spaced 1.8 – 2.4 m (6-8′) from each other. Thin to 3-4 plants per hill. Never let the plants lack for water.
