Hale's Best cantaloupe is a classic heirloom dating back to the 1920s. This juicy fruit is 3-5 lbs, features a heavy coarse net and light ribbing. The flesh is salmon in color with a sweet, juicy flavor that is perfect for snacking or adding to your favorite recipe. Plus, this melon is drought resistant.

Direct seed 2 to 3 weeks after average last frost and when daytime soil temperatures are near 70°F. Or, start melon seed indoors 3-4 weeks before your anticipated planting date. Set transplants in the garden 2 to 3 weeks after danger of frost has passed. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 65-85 degrees. A few weeks before transplanting time, harden off plants by exposing them to an increasing number of hours outdoors each day. Delay transplanting until your soil has thoroughly warmed up in the spring.
