Growing tip

Melon seeds dislike cold soil. It's better to wait until the soil is warm to plant the seeds. Also, melons don't like to have their roots disturbed, so when thinning out seedlings in hills, cut the stems of those you want to remove, rather than pulling them out.

Amazing! The BEST smelling thing in the whole garden
5 Stars

Whoever patents a perfume off this melon is going to be rich! These baseball/tennis ball sized melons did so well in the garden I was giving them out to everybody. Everyone who tasted them compared them to a pear or honey taste. I just kept them around for the smell. Truly the history of this melon being used as an air freshener is quite apparent when you grow them. Great in any garden!
