Organic Melon: Hale's Best Jumbo (1G)- Heirloom, Non-GMO Seeds
Cantaloupe is a summertime favorite that you can grow in your own garden. The Hale's Best Jumbo Organic Melon is a hardy variety friendly to most growing regions. Start your crop with organic melon seeds from Patriot Seeds. Our seeds are certified organic by CCOF and are 100% heirloom and non-GMO.

Organic Melon: Hale's Best Jumbo Planting Instructions:
Hale's Best Jumbo Melons do best in full sun and take about 80 days to grow. If starting outside, direct seed a week or two after the last frost. Plant ½” deep, placing 6 seeds per hill and spacing hills 4 to 6’ apart. You may also plant 1’ apart in rows 5’ apart. Later, thin to 2 or 3 plants per hill. If starting indoors, plant Ό” deep in peat pots (2” square or bigger) 2 to 4 weeks before moving outside. After the soil has warmed, mulch the plants to help keep the soil moisture consistent and to suppress weed growth.

Organic Melon: Hale's Best Jumbo Harvesting Instructions:
The cantaloupe should be yellowish orange in color and just slightly soft on the stem end before harvest. When ripe, the melons should come off the vine with ease. Watch the fruit carefully and harvest daily once the melons start to ripen. Another way to tell if the fruit is ripe is to knock on the melon and listen for a hollow sound. Immediately after harvesting, refrigerate the melons.

Did You Know This About Hale's Best Jumbo Melons?
