Organic Melon: Heart of Gold Planting Instructions:
Hearts of Gold Melons grow best in full sun and will take about 80 days to grow from planting to harvest. Direct sow the seeds 1 to 2 weeks after the last frost, planting 1/2 inch deep and 1" apart, in rows 5' apart. Thin to 2 to 3 plants per hill. If starting indoors to transplant, start the seeds 1/2 inch deep in peat pots (2" square or bigger) 2 to 4 weeks before moving outside. Once the soil has warmed, mulch the plants to help keep the moisture consistent and to discourage weeds.

Organic Melon: Heart of Gold Harvesting Instructions:
When they are ready to harvest, Hearts of Gold melons should have a yellowish-orange color and be just a little soft on the stem end. When ripe, the melons should pull off the vine with ease. Once the fruit starts to ripen, watch carefully and harvest daily. One way to tell if the fruit is ripe is to knock gently on the melons. A ripe melon will make a hollow sound. Refrigerate melons immediately after harvesting.
