This crop has an minimum optimum growing temperature of 18C and a maximum optimum growing temperature of 30C. All melons need a long, hot growing season to produce sweet fruit, and in a cooler climate the vines should be encouraged to grow over concrete or rocks, or trained over black plastic in order for heat to circulate around the plant.
Propagate from seed.
