Hale’s Best Melon

Heirloom muskmelon has been pleasing gardeners for over a century. Hale’s Best melons have silky textured, super sweet orange flesh surrounded by a thin rind with slight ribbing and heavy netting.

Sow hale's best melon seeds directly into soil that's at least 70°F. For a head start in cooler climates, start indoors 2-4 weeks before transplanting outdoors. Do not disturb tender roots when transplanting. Thin down to 2-3 plants per hill. Keep soil moist but well-drained. Allow plenty of room for vines to spread.
