Melon Growers, Note


We suggest you grow the correct type of melon for your market. Shipping types are especially resilient with lasting quality for long-distance market. They do, however, taste fine if grown for fresh market. The varieties we recommend for local or home garden are best used near where they are grown because they have a softer rind/skin and may not hold as well.
