saving seed from the Athena cantaloupes, but will they be any good? will they grow? I love muskmelons, this one is big enuff to keep me happy with a bit milder flavor than what I am normally drooling over, will saving the seeds do any good at all, or will I simply need to order commercial seeds?
It may be a bit different and you may get melons with different shapes and sizes. Odds are tho, they will be very similar. I prefer to know what I am growing so I usually get F1 seeds. But if you just want cantaloupes, they should work out fine
too much work, am gone so long-and they are still drying out- we plant 5 seeds to a hill, one water hole, 5 directions for em to grow, thin if necessary. just came in, have been getting all hot n bothered changin out the maters to the 54" cages, ddratted hornworms one a day-love my heirloom German Queen mater best of all, but goodness! am getting puny! Time to sit a spell.
