Minnesota Midget compact muskmelon

Minnesota Midget Muskmelon

Muskmelon

$ 2.79

(Cucumis melo) Minnesota Midget is absolutely the best choice if you are working with limited garden space.  Its compact vines reach just 3-4' in length while producing 6 to 8 melons each!  Pictured above you can count at least 5 melons in about four square feet. The melons are smaller, about 4-6" across, but they pack a lot of flavor.  Picked at their peak, they boast intense sweetness and juiciness.  All around, this is an awesome variety.  60-70 days to harvest.  25 seeds per packet.

CULTURE:  Direct sow seeds outdoors 2 weeks after last frost, once soil temps have reached 70 degrees.  Sow 3-5 seeds per hill with 2 to 4 feet between hills and to 3 to 4 feet between rows.  Under ideal conditions germination will occur in 5-8 days.  Melons are ready to harvest once the melon "slips" from the vine when gently tugged.  Don't leave them too long, however, as ripe melons have a sweet aroma that attracts insects.
