By Goddess's Seeds And Plants From Jamaica
Before Planting: A light, well-drained soil with a pH of 7.0 and a full Sun exposure is ideal. Good soil moisture is important in early stages of growth and during pollination when fruits are setting.
Watering: Cantaloupes need a steady supply of water, and soil needs to be damped but not flooded, approximately 1 inch a week.
Fertilizer: Prior to planting, mix aged manure and compost into the soil. Cantaloupes are heavy feeders, so fertilize at planting and throughout the growing season with a 5-5-5 or 10-10-10 granular fertilizer. Do not let the granules come in contact with the plant.
Tips: Cut off watering 1 week before harvest. This will give a more flavorful, concentrated melon. Over watering before harvest can cause bland taste.
AVG. Direct Seeding Rate: 30 seeds/10', 100 seeds/50' 1M/500', 15M/acre at 3 seeds every 18? in rows 6' apart.
