Description

Very productive vines are tolerant of powdery mildew

Days to Maturity: 100 from direct sow; 86 from transplant

A trusted favorite for many years, Ambrosia lives up to its name with luscious salmon-red flesh and a juicy, tender, extra-sweet flavor that simply melts in the mouth. The melons produce very small seed cavities, saving the extra space for more delectable flesh. And they arise very abundantly on vigorous vines with great tolerance of powdery mildew. A reliable favorite that will turn you away from store-bought cantaloupes forever.

Sow seeds directly in the garden after the soil is thoroughly warm or, for an even earlier harvest, start them indoors in pots. Set out 18 inches apart with 4 feet between each row, or plant in hills 4 feet apart, with 2 to 3 plants per hill. Cantaloupes are ready to harvest when the stem slips easily from the fruit with slight pressure. Mature fruits are 3 to 5 pounds.
