PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
 

Organic melon seed certified by Baystate Organic Certifiers.

Open PollinatedWhat do these symbols mean?
Sweet, juicy vine-ripened cantaloupes are a special treat from the summer garden. These delightful fruits requite lots of heat and sunshine to mature to full sweetness and deep color. Cantaloupes are delicious alone, or they can be dressed up as well. Serve chilled with lemon or lime wedges, top with yogurt, or mix with watermelon balls for a tasty and attractive salad or dessert.

When and Where to Plant: Select a sunny, well drained location and sow seeds in the late spring when soil has warmed. For an earlier crop, start seeds indoors 4-5 weeks before planting outdoors. For best results, loosen soil with a spade or fork, fertilize with vegetable food and smooth with a rake. Form soil over seed and keep moist.
Care: Keep soil moist and fertilize monthly. Mulch to conserve moisture.
Harvest: Pick when the blossom end is slightly springy and when the stem separates with a slight pull. For best flavor, ripen on the vine.
Your Health: Excellent source of vitamin A; also supplies Calcium, Iron, and Vitamins B and C.
