Melon

Melon

The melon originated in sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East. Domestication is thought to have happened in China, as writings show crop development 2,000 years ago. Mediterranean cultivation began at the end of the Roman era. Melons are luscious, delicious and much anticipated. When ripe, most melons "slip" from the vine with light pressure.

Melons are warm season fruit, needing warm, rich and fertile soil to grow in. Direct sowing is often the best way to grow as they dislike having their roots disturbed.
