To ensure high yield place pollinators near fields. A melon needs to be visited by a bee three times to ensure proper pollination. Scout every seven days for weed, insect, and disease pressure. Contact your local extension agent or consult the Midwest Vegetable Production Guide for identification and treatment options. https://www.extension.purdue.edu/extmedia/ID/ID-56-W%202020.pdf


Harvest 30 - 35 days after pollination. If shipping, pick at half slip. When picking for fresh market, pick at ¾ to full slip. Wash fruit in peroxyacetic acid (peroxide and acetic acid), as a non-chlorine sanitizing option.


Cool to at least 70ºF and at 95% humidity. Shelf life is based on storage temperature. Do not cool below 32ºF.
