Cantaloupe help...

I have a cantaloupe plant. It is huge and has many yellow flowers on and off. I haven't gotten any fruit. Any suggestions???

Could be a pollination problem. Sometimes young plants have a period of making all male flowers. If you see female flowers (those with minature melons) you could hand pollinate. Be patient, mine had flowers for quite a while before finally setting fruit. And even then a vine will often set only one or two mellons. My plant has two melons and seems to only be producing male flowers now.
