Cucumis melo L. Inodorus Group

115 days — 'Crenshaw', also marketed by some as "Cranshaw," has vines that are vigorous, but are somewhat compact, and productive. The fruit are pear-shaped, average six to eight pounds each, have skin that is green to yellow in color and with sweet, salmon-pink colored flesh.

Although we have successfully grown them here in Northern Oregon, they do require a long growing season and grows best in warmer weather. About 28 seeds per one gram packet.

Planting Instructions: The seeds can be directly sown in spring after the soil has warmed or started indoors three to four weeks before your last expected frost.

Indoors, plant two to three seeds per pot, ½ inch deep, thinning to best plant. Do not disturb roots.

Outdoors, plant six to eight seeds, ½ inch deep, in hills spaced four feet apart. Transplant or thin to three plants per hill.

Young plants are cold sensitive and some cover protection at nights may be required. Mulch or cultivate to control weeds.
