tips for growing Hales Best Jumbo Melons:

  • Choose a sunny spot in your garden with well-drained soil. Hales Best Jumbo Melons need full sun and well-drained soil to thrive.
  • Start seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before the last frost date. This will give the plants a head start and help them to produce fruit earlier in the season.
  • Transplant seedlings to the garden after the last frost date. Space the plants 18-24 inches apart in rows spaced 5-6 feet apart.
  • Water Hales Best Jumbo Melons regularly, especially during hot weather. Water deeply at the base of the plant, avoiding the foliage.
  • Fertilize the plants every 2-3 weeks with a balanced fertilizer.
  • Train Hales Best Jumbo Melon vines to grow on a trellis or fence. This helps to keep the fruit off the ground and prevents rot.

Here are some additional tips for growing Hales Best Jumbo Melons:

  • Pinch back the tips of the vines when they are about 12 inches long. This will encourage the plants to branch out and produce more fruit.
  • Hand-pollinate the flowers to increase fruit production. To do this, simply transfer pollen from the male flowers to the female flowers with a small paintbrush.
  • Place a piece of cardboard or foam under the developing melons. This will help to protect them from the ground and prevent rot.
  • Harvest Hales Best Jumbo Melons when they are slightly soft to the touch and have a sweet aroma.

In addition to the above tips, here are a few more things you can do to help your Hales Best Jumbo Melons grow and thrive:

  • Mulch around the plants to help retain moisture and suppress weeds. Black plastic mulch is a good option for Hales Best Jumbo Melons, as it helps to warm the soil.
  • Protect the plants from pests and diseases. Hales Best Jumbo Melons are susceptible to a number of pests and diseases, including powdery mildew, aphids, and cucumber beetles. Be sure to inspect your plants regularly and treat any problems promptly.
  • Give the plants plenty of space to grow. Hales Best Jumbo Melon vines can get quite large, so be sure to give them plenty of space to spread out.
