- Melon Tip
- Melons require a bright, warm growing season of about three months duration. Row covers or black mulch are highly recommended for extending growing season, to ensure maturity and to increase yield. Muskmelons are ripe when fruit pulls off easily or slips from the vine. Watermelons are ripe when the curly tendril that intersects the main stem with the stem on the fruit has completely dried and turned brown and the underside of the melon is yellow.
