HEIRLOOM: Simply the best cantaloupe, ever. It's never been equalled--sweet & juicy with rich orange meat.

SKU 1CANTG
"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.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
