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.

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 :).
