Growing Rockmelon, also Canteloupe

View the Rockmelon page

02 Apr 09 Sharon (Australia - temperate climate)
We have a rockmelon plant that has come up through the compost when I mixed it in the vege patch. We have 2 softball size fruit and at least 8 more growing. Wondering how long it takes for them to mature and is it too late in the season for them to be productive? We live on the NSW south coast. Thanks Sharon
