Melon's

Melons can be enjoyed as a healthy snack and they are a great source of vitamin C and antioxidants. Early start, a far summer and regular watering, good crops can be achieved. The plants have a trailing habit so they need plenty of room or training around and within posts. Sow in the same way as traditional melons, but start off as early as possible to get the full season of growth. We grow a number of varieties.
  • Is tolerant to low temperatures with a round oval shape with a greyish-green peel colour. It turns orange when it is maturing. These melons are very tasty, fragrant and a sweet variety of melon. Delicious and juicy when eaten on their own.
