This is the first year I am growing Melon Maverick.
When do I harvest the fruit?
How do I know it is ready?
Here is the description of the variety:
High yielding cantaloupe. 83 Days. Field tests of Maverick have indicated that this high quality cantaloupe has excellent yield potential. In tests from 2003-2005, Maverick has consistently been one of the best yielding varieties. The 4-5.5 lb fruit have a slight oval shape and are produced on vines that are resistant to powdery mildew and intermediate resistance to Fusarium wilt (races 0 and 2). The thick, bright orange flesh has outstanding flavor, sweetness and 'melt in your mouth' quality. The rind has coarse netting and slight sutures. http://www.harrisseeds.com/storefront/p-8200-melon-maverick...
