Hi there. Once I've harvested and eaten the delicious rockmelons, do i leave the plant there till next year? Or shall i pot it and bring it inside when it turns colder. Will it fruit again next year? Thanks so much!

You grow one crop over about 4-5 months and then dig them out. As the melons ripen the vines will die.
