Beautiful, oval-shaped melons weighing 1 to 2 pounds with lovely silver stripes. The white flesh is crisp and sweet. This is a Korean variety that was introduced by Burpee’s and is one of the best. Very productive and quite early, Early Silver Line Melon is a good choice for the north and fun for kids to grow. (75 days)
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.
