Cucamelon Seeds

  • Start cucamelon seeds indoors 4-6 weeks prior to your last frost date.

    Bury seeds 1/2 inch (13 mm) deep and cover with soil. Keep moist until germination in ~10-14 days. May take longer with cooler soil temperatures.

    Trellising is recommended for best fruit production with plants spaced ~ 12 inches (30cm) apart.
