Description

Cantaloupe for one please

Days to Maturity: 95 from direct sow; 80 from transplant

No more wasted cantaloupe slices with Lilliput. This personal-sized melon is just right for one person to devour at a single sitting. And because it grows quickly, finishes fast, and smells as good as it tastes, you will most likely gobble up the entire generous harvest in no time, and put Lilliput at the top of your list for next year's veggie garden.

Lilliput is high in sugars and very aromatic, with dark orange flesh and a very small seed cavity. It is well netted, reaching just 3½ to 5 inches in diameter and weighing 1 to 2 pounds when mature. Petite and packed with flavor.

Resistant to Fusarium wilt races 0-2 as well as powdery mildew races 1-2, Lilliput is a good choice for hot and humid climes where other melons may suffer. But it is well adapted, thriving in a wide range of gardens. The slightly quicker finish means that you can grow Lilliput in short-season areas where full-size, slower melons may not ripen in time.

Sow seeds directly in the garden after the soil is thoroughly warm or, for an even earlier harvest, start them indoors in pots. Set out transplanted seedlings 18 inches apart with 4 feet between each row, or plant seeds in hills 4 feet apart, with 2 to 3 plants per hill. Lilliput is ready to harvest when the stem slips easily from the fruit with slight pressure and the rind turns from greenish to yellow-tan.

love idea of growing mini cantalopes

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

I really enjoy park seeds and I can not wait to eat a mini Hybrid cantalope. Only reason I only gave 4 stars is because they are taking a little longer to grow.
