Heirloom melons, with their unusual shapes and colors, are a sweet change from the ordinary. And early-harvest heirlooms make growing delicious melons possible in most every garden zone. Wait for soil to warm (70 degrees) before setting out plants and don't over water. Encourage growth and fruiting with mulch, cloches or black plastic.
