Our Master Gardeners Suggest Pairing With:
"Hale's Best" has been around forever, but never equalled. Your grandmother grew it, and almost every "great cantaloupe" you've ever enjoyed has been this variety. It's a rapidly growing vine with melons of great rich orange color, lots of juice, and a small seed cavity giving you maximum goodness per melon. Gotta' have these in your garden. Yummmmmm!

When and Where to Plant: Select a sunny, well drained location and sow seeds in the late spring when soil has warmed. For an earlier crop, start seeds indoors 4-5 weeks before planting outdoors. For best results, loosen soil with spade or fork, fertilize with vegetable food and smooth with rake. Firm soil over seed and keep moist.
Care: Keep soil moist and fertilize monthly. Mulch to conserve moisture.
Harvesting: Pick when the blossom end is slightly springy and when the stem separates with a slight pull. For best flavor, ripen on the vine.
