We had a discussion on tiger melons a while back and lots of people said they wanted to grow them this summer! I grew them last year and originally said I was going to grow musk melons this year instead...but I changed my mind! They're already getting their first true leaves and I am so excited I can hardly wait!
Yes, yes, I know most of you are still battling frost or just now getting your first plants in the ground, but don't worry, you can give me the business in a little over a month when it's over 100 degrees on a daily basis and everything (including myself) but my melons are struggling to survive.
So, who all is growing them for sure? I found they're sweeter and more flavorful if I let them fully ripen on the vine til they fell off of their own accord, and then refrigerated them for a couple days. Any other tips to improve their flavor?
I can almost smell them now...
