Cucumis melo

Min Qty: 30 seeds

Description:  Super sweet flavor, these French heirloom melons bruise easily and don't travel well.  2-3 pound fruits.

Planting Instructions:   80-90 days. Start seeds indoors 3-4 weeks before last frost date.  After danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed up, transplant seedlings after hardening off in hills, plant 3-4 seedlings in a ring around the top of the hill, spacing your hills about 6' apart.  Alternately, direct seed outdoors after the danger of frost has passed and soil has warmed.  Sow seeds 1/2" deep in rich, well-drained soil, 3 seeds together every 12-24" with 3-4' between rows.  Thin to strongest seedling.
