I have a couple of cantaloupe plants, they look great, and they have a bunch of baby fruit on them. They seemed to be doing well, but then some just turned yellow and dropped. They are in the sun, have great soil. I have seen Bee activity, I am worried I am missing something.
None of the leaves are yellow, only the fruit and they only get to about Pecan size before this happens. Thanks for any info. I hate to lose the rest. They are on a trellis up off the ground.
I love this! - There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling.

The ones that turn yellow and fall off are not getting pollinated correctly.

That's a pollination issue, namely, the lack thereof. [url=]This[/url] will help you out :).
