Sarah's Choice Cantaloupe
One of the joys of eating homegrown cantaloupe is savoring the rich flavor and intense aroma. Sarah's Choice won't disappoint in either of these categories. These melons offer thick and juicy flesh that's richly fragrant. Easy to grow. Vines are productive, yielding plenty of fruits for eating and sharing.
Cantaloupes, also called muskmelons, are more than 90% water, so be sure to provide frequent, regular waterings. To save space, plant 1 foot apart at the base of a fence or trellis where the long vines can climb. You can also tuck a single plant into a large container, like a half whiskey barrel. Sarah's Choice is resistant to powdery mildew and fusarium wilt race 3.
