Curcuma melon reticulates, a species of muskmelon, is the most common semi-sweet cantaloupe in the United States. Cantaloupes have been grown for thousands of years. The majority of experts agree that it originated in Persia (modern Iran).

How to grow it

  • Sow seeds in sterile seed starting mix in large seedling pots, huge soil blocks, or seedling trays with large apertures four weeks before the last frost date—cantaloupe seedlings grow quickly! Cantaloupe seeds are huge seeds that should be sown around 1/2 inch deep. We like to plant 2-3 seeds at each location to ensure that at least one germinates.
  • Keep the seedlings well-watered and at a comfortable temperature! Cantaloupe seeds germinate best when the soil temperature is between 75 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit. To obtain this temperature, most people who start melon seeds indoors will need a seed starting mat.
  • Keep the seedlings consistently hydrated and warm once they have germinated. They’re going to develop quickly! Make use of small amounts.
