An incredible eating melon with exceptionally high sugars and a near perfect texture. Full slip melon.
Easy to tell when ripe. Full slip means a gentle nudge with your thumb on the melon where it joins the stem will remove the fruit from the stem. No more guessing. Perfect melon for northern short season gardeners.
How to keep your melon friends happy:
They love heat so dont plant too soon. They like raised beds if you have the space, since the soil warms quicker. Or plant in hills of soil that warm quickly. They like loamy well drained soil with lots of compost. Handle very gently when transplanting so you dont disturb their roots. Dont mulch too soon. Fertilize when vines start growing. Row covers can keep them warmer and reduce insects. Avoid getting leaves wet when watering. Blossoms require bees for fertilization so dont use row covers until the bees finish their work. They love it when you sing to them as does all the garden :)
