Developed by a Japanese market gardener in California this muskmelon became widely popular because it combined excellent flavor with earliness. Hale's Best Jumbo is a beautiful oval melon deep green skin with golden netting. The flesh is an appealing salmon color, aromatic and sweet. Sweet, juicy vine-ripened cantaloupes are a special treat from the summer garden. These delightful fruits requite lots of heat and sunshine to mature to full sweetness and deep color. Cantaloupes are delicious alone, or they can be dressed up as well. Serve chilled with lemon or lime wedges, top with yogurt, or mix with watermelon balls for a tasty and attractive salad or dessert.

Hales Best Jumbo Melon Germination: Melons must not be planted until the soil temperature has warmed to 70-80 degrees F, since they thrive in heat. Start the plants indoors only 2-4 weeks before transplanting, since if the plants grow too large they have difficulty adjusting to the change. Sow several seeds 1/2 deep in each peat pot, and keep them at 75 degrees until they germinate. Thin to the strongest plant in each pot by cutting off the others. Gradually accustom the plants to outdoor temperatures by setting them outside during the day, then transplant them to hills 4-6' apart with 2-3 plants to a hill. For companion planting benefits, plant melons near corn but not potatoes. Growing Hales Best Jumbo Melon Seeds: In cooler climates, melons may benefit from black plastic to warm the soil mulch also helps to conserve necessary moisture, control weeds, and keep the melons clean.
