Melon 'Perseus' F1 Hybrid is a melon that can be grown in greenhouses or sheltered, sunny areas of British gardens. It is a charentais-type melon with fruits weighing up to 750g, with attractive striped skin, and juicy orange flesh inside. They have good resistance to pests and diseases, and have a long cropping season, beginning in spring and will continue to grow until autumn. They need plenty of space to thrive. Height: 30cm (12”). Spread: 200cm (78”).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Water melons regularly, particularly as the flowers develop, and provide a liquid feed every 10-14 days. Shade plants from strong direct sunlight. As the flowers develop, select 4 or 5 female flowers on each plant and hand pollinate them by placing a male flower inside each female bloom. Female melon flowers are identified by a swollen part at the base of the bloom. Once fruit has set remove any further flowers to allow the fruits to develop. Harvest melons when they begin to produce their characteristic sweet smell and the fruits start to crack near to the stem.
