Cucumis melo

Rockmelon - Honeydew is a delicious Summer vine, producing large round fruit growing to approx. 20cm. The fruit has a creamy white skin with thick, lime green flesh tasting very sweet in flavour. Stores well for long periods of time.

Rockmelons are warm-season annual vines and require a long, hot growing season.

Sow directly where it is to grow approx. 10mm deep, Spring and Summer (after the threat of frost has passed).  Full sun, moist well drained soil.  Germination approx. 4 - 10 days.  Pinch out growing tips to encourage further branching of the vine, and a more prolific crop.

When fruit is ripening, pop a flat piece of wood under the fruit that is laying on the ground to avoid any rotting from contact with wet soil.

Harvest when the melon end has turned yellow near the stem, and the melon slips easily from the vine, in approx. 85 days.
