Early Hanover is the perfect melon to add to your home garden or market stand and has heavy yields. Luscious, 2 to 3 pound, green fleshed fruits are bursting with flavor. Introduced by T.W. Woods & Sons of Richmond, Virginia in 1895. (75 days)
Each packet contains approximately 25-50 seeds.
Melons need fertile soil and abundant heat to reach perfection. Sow in place about two weeks after last frost. Plant seed about one inch deep, 12 inches apart, in rows 5 feet apart. May also plant in hills, 4 to 5 seeds per hill, with hills about 5 feet apart.
In short-season climates, grow transplants indoors, starting 1 week before last frost date and set out about 2 to 3 weeks after sowing; never let transplants become root-bound in their container.
