Sowing and Caring

  • Use a comfortable Grow bag like Seed2Plant HDPE round grow bags to plant. Not more than 2 seeds should be planted in a grow bag (referring to 24x24 inch growbag)
  • Use organically enriched potting mix like the one we have to pot the seeds. Leave one inch gap from the top of the grow bag. 
  • In places like India, it is advisable to sow seeds during march/ April when the soil is sufficiently warm. 
  • Water appropriately such that the soil is moist and not soggy. The fruit requires plenty of water (soil should be kept wet upto 2 inches deep). Avoid watering the leaves as it will lead to powdery mildew. Water directly over the soil
  • Place the pot in a location that receives full sunlight for at least 10 hours a day.
  • The seeds will germinate in 2 weeks. Muskmelon is a vine, and requires a support net/ trellis like the Seed2Plant support net to enable faster climbing and growth.
  • If the melon has more flowers and fewer fruits, pollination is recommended to stimulate fruiting. Plants like marigold, basil and sage cane be planted nearby to invite bees/ insects for pollination muskmelon.

Harvest

  • Harvest can begin 78-90 days after germination. The fruit gives a strong aroma and develops yellow spots suggesting it is ready for harvest. 
  • A fully ripe muskmelon will separate from the vine easily. A pruning scissor can alsobe used.

Common Problems

  • Prone to powdery mildew when the leaves are often wet. Additional care should be taken during watering to avoid the fungal growth.
  • Aphids, cucumber beetles and spider mites are the common pests attacking the fruit. 

Precautions

  • Weeds should be pruned off around the vine to prevent fungal diseases and provide enough space for the roots to breathe.
  • Application (foliar spraying) of neem oil like Seed2Plant Water-soluble neem oil will prevent pest and fungal attacks.
  • Using potassium-rich organic fertilizers like the Seed2Plant A2 Desi Cow Panchagavya will stimulate faster fruiting and flowering.
  • It is also suggested to add phosphorus rich fertilizer like the fertilizers like the Seed2Plant phosphobacteria fertilizer.
