OTHER: Midget Cantaloupes are both adorable & delicious! These smaller melons grow to 4”, or roughly the size of a softball, & weigh between 8–16 oz. They are the perfect “personal melon” size –
Grab a spoon & dig in! The fruit has a high sugar content & is very sweet. The fragrant melons have juicy orange flesh beneath thin rinds.
These muskmelons grow on compact plants with good disease resistance & sturdy stalks. Their vines only reach 3-4’, making them a wonderful choice for container gardens. Each plant produces from 6 to 8 melons. The fruit matures much more quickly than that of a full sized cantaloupe, making them a great choice for northern areas with a shorter growing season. They grow so quickly that in moderately warm climates 2 crops can be harvested in a season.
If you are someone who grows to sell at The Farmer’s Market, you will definitely want to sow these! You will beat everyone & be the first to market with sweet juicy fresh local cantaloupe. Imagine how many you could sell in a weekend when you are the only one that has cantaloupes!

I confirm the midget cantaloupe was very easy to grow! And grows very fast once it comes up. If you are having issues then you are doing something wrong. These came up with using a Jeff’s green house with a light. I also sprouted some by soaking in a little water. With in 2 - 4 days they sprouted. Very strong plants. We are already transferring them to pots, wish us luck! Can’t wait to taste our first potted cantaloupe. Worth the 2.00 and can be grown in a pot.
