Today I started 6 seeds for Minnesota Midget Melon, a very early and small canteloupe. The vines are also compact, and will grow in containers. This heirloom canteloupe is 4-7″ in diameter, and about half a pound. Each vine should produce 6-8 canteloupe. If so, I will meet my desire for… melons!
Minnesota Midget Melons sprout quickly, in 3-10 days, and will be planted out in late April or early May, since I am having an exceptionally warm late winter this year.
in case of late frosts, I will start 6 more seeds in mid-April.
I will likely keep these in pots.
