Cantaloupe is a vining plant that is grown for it large, sweet fruits. To grow the best fruits, plants should receive 1 to 2 inches of water per week. When the vines start developing, apply nitrogen. When flowering starts, add fertilizer. They can be picked when the blossom end of the melon becomes slightly soft to pressure. All of our Cantaloupe Plants for sale are grown organically and shipped with very well-established root systems. We guarantee them to arrive alive and thriving.
