I have a problem with turtles eating on the cantaloupe so last year I planted them in containers and let them run up a chainlink fence. This worked well so I just planted seeds in another area next to chainlink fence. By growing them on a fence when they fall they are ripe.

I have the seed for this melon from American Seed.
The packet says "Nearly round, 5-6 inches in diameter, weighing 3-4 pounds each. Days to germinate - 10 to 14d
Depth to sow - 1 inch
Seed spacing - 3 per hill
Row spacing - 4-6 ft
Days to harvest - 90 to 102d
Sow after last danger of frost, thin each group to 3 or 4 plants per hill when plants are 1-2inches in height. For early starting, start plants indoors about 4-6 weeks before outdoor planting time, each peat pot should contain 3-4 seeds."
