SKU: ClMiM Category:

(Cucumis melo) 60-75 days.       Bred by the University of Minnesota in 1948 specifically for shorter growing seasons in the northern regions. The Minnesota Midget cantaloupe is an extra early variety, with compact vines perfectly suited to the small garden, some have even reported them to do well in large containers. Small fruits are approx. 5-6″ in diameter, and weigh 13 oz – 1 ½ lbs. Thick golden-yellow interior flesh is delicious and sweet, edible to the rind. Tolerant to Fusarium wilt and cool nights.

Planting Instructions for Minnesota Midget Cantaloupe Seeds

Minnesota Midget Cantaloupe are heat loving plants that prefer well drained loose soil and an even amount of water. Plant Cantaloupe in rows or hills but make sure the soil is well warmed. In the North it helps to start seeds indoors 2-3 wks. before last frost. Plant Minnesota Midget seeds ½” deep in full sun. For rows plant 3-4″ apart, in rows 6-10′ apart. For hills plant 4-6 seeds per hill, with hills 2-3′ apart. Germination occurs in 3-10 days in soil 70-85°F. In hills thin to 2 Cantaloupe plants per hill. Harvest Minnesota Midget when fruit easily slips from the vine, or smells very sweet and fragrant at the blossom end. Heirloom Honeydew does not slip from the vine, the melon must be cut from the vine.

We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative, We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately healthy people and communities.” ×
