Melon, 'Allstar’ F1
Medium sized ‘Harper’ style rockmelon with excellent flavour and quality and strong resistance to Powdery Mildew and Fusarium Wilt.. Very good resistance to ground cracking. Has good keeping qualities and is easy to judge ripeness as netting becomes more prominent on the peduncle (fruit/stem attachment).
Grow them in two ways:
1. Plant one seed per pot in October in a warm indoor spot. Plant out after the last frost in a spot protected from wind. A plastic tree guard may be used. Harvest in February.
2. Plant two seeds directly into the garden in November. Thin to one plant when the first leaves appear. Harvest these in March.
