The Minnesota Midget Melon is a compact heirloom variety bred by the University of Minnesota in 1948.  This small, 4" round melon has a green skin and a sweet, orange flesh. Vines are very compact at 3ft long. It is perfect for gardeners in colder climates, as it ripens early. Great for containers as well. Resistant to Fusarium Wilt. 600mg ~ 25 seeds.

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.
