10x Organic Honeydew Seeds

Large and pale green with a light floral scent, Honeydew melons (Cucumis melo) are a warm-weather fruit that does well in temperatures between 65 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit. They do best in U.S. Department of Agriculture hardiness zones 4 through 11. While they can be direct planted in the springtime, using transplants will give you a head start, meaning you could have a melon harvest as early as mid to late summer.

In ideal growing conditions, where air temperatures are between 68 and 86 F, honeydew melon seeds take 8 to 10 days to germinate. When soil temperatures are around 68 F, germination takes place in 8 to 10 days. With soil temperatures of 77 F or higher, the germination period is closer to three or four days. As they take a long time to reach maturity, plant your seeds and your transplants as soon as you can.

As the honeydew melons continue to grow, keep the area well-watered and weed-free as this is key to a healthy plant and harvest. Water the plants whenever the first two inches of soil is dry when touched. Give each of the plants a long, thorough soak to encourage a deep root structure and ensure there is enough water for the plant to develop healthy fruit. As a shallow rooted plant, honeydew melons benefit from regular irrigation. When the soil is dry 2 inches below the surface, water the melons. Each plant requires 1/2 a gallon of water twice a week, increasing to 1 gallon of water twice a week during fruit production.

Honeydew melons are ripe when their skin is a pale green, sometimes with a faint yellow tinge. When ready to harvest, the melons are removed easily from the vine.
