Barlow's Best Melons
Nothing beats the flavor of fresh melon in the summer, grow it outdoors in a full sun location. Feed every week with an all-natural fertilizer, such as Espoma Garden-tone® for best results!
- Sugar Baby: A petite variety of Watermelon, with dark green skin and bright red flesh that's incredibly sweet. Compact vines that produce a large yield of fruit weighing from 8 to 10 lbs.
- Ball 1776/ Delicious 51: Sweet and juicy, this variety of Cantaloupe grows up to 5lbs. A spreading variety, produces delicious fruit great for grilling or eating raw.
These are tender herbs and will not survive outdoors overnight in freezing temperatures: be sure to plant outdoors once the fear of frost is over.
