Who doesn't love cantaloupe? Growing Cantaloupe Seeds can be very rewarding. Cantaloupe is a great fruit for breakfast. It also makes an awesome desert when served with ice cream (Sherbert or Vanilla) and whipped cream. Cantaloupe require full sun and take up to 75 days to produce fruit. Be patient and you will be rewarded. Cantaloupe take up a lot of space in a garden. So if you do not have a large garden, we suggest using a trellis.
