Plant Your Cantaloupe At The Right TimeCantaloupe prefers warm to hot weather, therefore, do not plant it early spring when the soil is still cold. Cantaloupe does best when you sow the seeds directly, but if need be, sow your seeds indoors.Eliminate All Chances Of Pests And DiseasesDo not plant your cantaloupe where you had previously planted members of the cucumber family (Cucurbitaceae) like squash, melons, and pumpkins.
Cantaloupe once grown must be harvested at the right time. They continue to soften once picked but won’t get any sweeter than they were when you harvested them. Leaving it on the vine for as long as possible gives you a sweeter taste.
