Thai Yellow Sweet Melon (Cucumis melo) is a popular fruit in Asia. Its beautiful yellow skin has fine white lines and white flesh that is juicy and sweet. Easy to grow fruits grow 10" x 6" and can be trellised if given proper support. 70-80 days. 10 seeds.
GROWING MELONS: Melons are heat lovers and heavy feeders, so pick a sunny spot and spend some time preparing the soil with rich compost and creating hills for the vines to trail down. Wait until soil temp is 70 degrees to direct sow, or start indoors and harden off. Keep the beds mulched with straw as weeding will becoming impossible once the vining gets underway. The straw will also help retain moisture in the soil and melons need lots of regular watering. Once the blossoms have set, use fish emulsion as a side dressing. Some smaller varieties are suitable for trellising.
