Also known as cantaloupe, this fruit matures early and has a strong resistance against diseases. It has excellently sweet flavor and its flesh has an attractive orange salmon colour.
The plants produce many good-sized oval netted melons about 17 cm in diameter. They are ready to pick when the stem begins to break away from its fruits.
Rockmelons perform their best under warm, hot and dry conditions. Highly recommend growing them in free-draining and fertile sandy soils.
