melonWe have been growing muskmelons (sometimes called cantaloupes) for many years, and a few years ago added the crisp white-fleshed Asian melons to our repertoire. This year we are also growing Tasty Bites personal-size melons from Johnny’s Seeds. I was going to write an article about personal-size melons (they top out at 3 pounds), but found I hadn’t yet written in Growing for Market about melons at all (other than watermelons). So I’ll leave the individual-size melons for a future article. By then I’ll have more experience with them.
