Item #05525-PK-P1


6 to 8 pound open-netted melons are peachy-sweet

Days to Maturity: 91 from direct sow: 77 from transplant

Now you can grow enormous 6- to 8-pound melons with great flesh firmness and a juicy-sweet taste—no matter where you live.

Even in short-season areas, Park's Whopper grows quickly on super vigorous plants, bearing plenty of open-netted melons with firm, thick peachy-orange flesh bursting with flavor. 7½ to 9 inches in diameter, these are whoppers in size, flavor, and speed of harvest.

Park's Whopper owes its ready growth and large fruit to very strong plants. They're resistant to Fusarium races 0, 1, and 2, as well as to powdery mildew races 1 and 2. With disease fighting capability like this, it's no wonder the fruit is so abundant and healthy.

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 18 inches apart with 4 feet between each row, or plant in hills 4 feet apart, with 2 to 3 plants per hill. Cantaloupes are ready to harvest when the stem slips easily from the fruit with slight pressure.

Best Cantaloupe Ever

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I have been growing Parks Whopper for years. The picture they show doesn't do it justice. It is far larger than any other cantalope. It has a nice firm exterior and a delicious interior. When others see what we have grown, they are amazed we have grown such a big, beautiful cantalooe.

All I Will Ever Plant

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

I planted my first cantalopes in a 10 gal pot 3 years ago. I had three plants, &got 3 cantalopes. Last year I made 4' long planter boxes, with 4 plants in each & got 16. This year using the same boxes, with 3 plants each in them, & it's lookin better than last year. These things get big & taste great!

Great Melons!!!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

These 7" diameter melons are delicious and super sweet. I have picked 3 so far this season and all were delicious. I also have smaller ones which are not yet ripe. These melons are the best! I will definitely order the seeds again next year. :)

Amazingly Large Fruits!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Vigorous and hearty vines grow large melons. From 4 seeds planted in a raised bed in zone 7, I expect to harvest many almost soccer ball size melons. No pest or disease issues to report - just lots of yummy fruit!
