Jumbo Cantaloupe This is a very sweet cantaloupe. It has a salmon colored flesh and a yellow rind. These melons can weigh up to 5 pounds. Melons love the heat and need 85 days to reach maturity. Plant: Sow seeds in a warm and sunny location. Plant when the soil has warmed in the spring. You may wish to start the seeds indoors 4 weeks before planting outside. You can plant in hills with 3 or 4 seeds per hill. I prefer to plant mine in a row. Harvest: Melons will slip from the vine when ripe. After that point you need to watch them everyday.
