Honeydew Green Melon Growing Plan


Honeydew melons are a warm-season crop that needs full sun and well-drained soil. They are not tolerant of frost, so it is important to wait until the last frost date in your area has passed before planting.


Honeydew melons prefer rich, sandy loam soil with a pH of 6.0 to 6.5. If your soil is too acidic, you can amend it with lime. Add compost or manure to the soil before planting to improve drainage and fertility.


Honeydew melon seeds can be sown directly in the garden or started indoors and transplanted. If you are starting seeds indoors, sow them 4-6 weeks before the last frost date. Sow the seeds 1/2 inch deep in small pots filled with seed starting mix. Keep the soil moist and warm until the seeds germinate.

After the seedlings have two sets of true leaves, transplant them to the garden. Space the plants 18-24 inches apart in rows spaced 5-6 feet apart.


Honeydew melons need regular watering, 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.

Mulch around the plants to help retain moisture and suppress weeds. Black plastic mulch is a good option for honeydew melons, as it helps to warm the soil.


Honeydew melon vines can be trained to grow on a trellis or fence. This helps to keep the fruit off the ground and prevents rot. To train the vines, simply tie them to the trellis or fence with twine.


Honeydew melons are ripe when they are slightly soft to the touch and have a sweet aroma. Harvest the melons in the morning, after the dew has evaporated.

To store honeydew melons, keep them in a cool, dry place. They will last for several weeks under these conditions.


  • Powdery mildew: This fungal disease can cause white powdery spots to appear on the leaves of honeydew melon plants. If you see powdery mildew, spray the plants with a fungicide.
  • Aphids: These small, green insects can suck the sap out of honeydew melon plants, causing them to wilt and yellow. If you see aphids, spray the plants with an insecticidal soap.
  • Cucurbit beetles: These beetles can damage honeydew melon plants and spread diseases. To control cucurbit beetles, cover the plants with row covers or use an insecticide.
