Sow melon seed 1 inch deep.
Space seeds 18 inches apart in the garden.
Plant melons on raised mounds or hills that are 24 inches across or wider. Mounds warm quickly in spring and stay warm through the growing season.
Sow 4 to 6 melons seeds on each mound; when seedlings have developed three or four true leaves, thin to the 2 or 3 strongest seedlings on each hill.
Cut the thinned seedlings at soil level with scissors so as not to disturb the roots of the remaining plants.
Space mounds 4 to 6 feet apart.
Variety - Kachari
- 60-90 P to P

While sowing seeds make sure the soil is damp and not wet. Water the seeds as the soil starts to dry. It should always be moist, but never wet or muddy. Do not water the seeds if the soil is already moist to the touch, as overwatering your plant can be just as harmful as underwatering.
Keep the seedling tray in bright filtered light to begin with. Slowly introduce the plant to morning sun and bring it back in before the afternoon sun sets in. In a weeks time you can put it in direct sunlight.
