Botanical Interests Organic Hales Best Jumbo Canteloupe Melon
This heirloom muskmelon is an old favorite with fabulous flavor, and long time gardeners swear by it! It has very thick, sweet salmon-pink flesh with a small seed cavity. And, it also grows and stays sweet in a variety of conditions, particularly drought. This packet plants: One 30-foot row.
When to plant outside: Recommended. (With such a short crop time, you can plant directly in the ground.) Spring, 2 weeks after average last frost when soil temperatures are warm.
When to start inside: 4-6 weeks before average last frost. Seedlings don't transplant well. Use paper or peat pots and plant directly into soil.
Special Sowing & Germination Instructions: Melons love heat and are very frost sensitive. Cover soil with black plastic before seeding outside and seed into a cross cut in the plastic.

About Botanical Interests
Curtis and Judy met while waiting to interview for the same horticultural job and soon found they shared a boundless enthusiasm for gardening. Botanical Interests began out of their mutual passion and personal desire for better quality seed and more informational tools to help and inpire gardeners.
"We wanted a level of purity and quality that wasn't easy to find," recalls Curtis. So they searched out the highest quality seed available and began their business in 1997, in the spare bedroom of their Colorado home. The business objectives they established then still hold strong for them now: to inspire and educate gardeners; to provide high quality seed to their customers; and to create an enjoyable work place for employees.
Over the years, Judy and Curtis' family has grown along with their line of seeds which now attracts and pleases customers nationwide.
