Melon, Honeydew 'Sweet Delight’ (Cucumis melo)
‘Sweet Delight is a delicious honeydew melon with juicy, full flavoured flesh if picked ripe. As it is quick to ripen it can be grown in cooler areas of Australia where the later ripening heirloom strains are problematic.
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.
