Melon Seeds

View Quick Facts Chart

Melons come in many types, colors, shapes and sizes and some have a sweet, juicy flesh. Whether you grow cantaloupe, honeydew or a variety of specialty melons from seed, this delicious fruit is a top performer both in the fields and home gardens.

Growing Tips:
Plant melon seeds in late spring or summer, when your soil is warm. In short-season climates, start your growing season early by planting melon seeds indoors weeks before you are ready to transplant your seedlings. Melon seeds germinate best in soil temperatures between 75-80F, unless packaging states otherwise. Pests and disease are common in some areas of the United States. These delicate fruits may grow best with the help of organic or conventional fungicides.

Melons are a staple fruit in grocery chains, farmers’ markets, roadside stands, and backyard gardens. We offer the biggest selection of melon varieties that include muskmelon, honeydew, cantaloupe, and specialty melons. Untreated melon seed varieties are listed.

Average Seed Count: 30 per packet; 1000/Oz.
