( Ogden Melon )
|'Ogden' is a muskmelon type. It is evenly ribbed and gold yellow in color with green stripes on the ribs. Fruits are small and round. Melons can be a challenge to grow, so dependant are they on good soil and hot weather.
Starting them in pots can also be useful, as the roots will be less disturbed by transplanting. Vine productivity can be improved by pruning. When the vines are 2.5' long, remove the end buds, which will encourage lateral growth. Keeping the vines short will preserve the plant's resources for the fruit.
Important Info : They can be difficult to grow outside the region in which they were developed. Baking hot, sandy soil, is generally a good bet for improving your crop. It is useful to have a cold frame to get the plants going early.
