Imagine biting into a perfectly vine-ripened, highly aromatic melon at the peak of sweetness and flavor, so juicy that it drips down your chin, and you don't even care! Melons flourish in the heat and use lots of water while growing (thus the unending juiciness). Melons also grow well on a trellis, which saves space and helps prevent disease.
Did you know that what we call cantaloupes are really muskemlons? True cantaloupes are hard-shelled melons from Europe. Honeydew melons differ from muskmelons in that the skin is smooth, the flesh is green, and the scent is markedly different. There are also some hybridized melons out there that will truly win you over!
