To prevent insect damage to developing fruits, place melons on pots or pieces of wood.
If growing melons on a trellis, support fruit with slings made from netting, fabric, or pantyhose.
Trellising improves air circulation around plants and can help reduce foliar disease problems.
Choose small-fruited varieties and reduce plant spacing.
This great tasting muskmelon has firm, sweet, aromatic salmon-colored flesh that is refreshing on its own or in fruit salads. The early maturing oval fruits have a yellow-green rind, coarse, protective netting, and a light rib. The productive vines are disease- and drought-tolerant.
For large plantings, leave a strip of rye cover crop every second or third row perpendicular to prevailing winds to protect plants from damaging wind.
To reduce insect and disease problems, avoid planting cucumber family crops (melons, squash, pumpkins) in the same spot two years in a row.
