Wow, from Feb to now and no melons....that's a long time. It might be too late, but the only thing I can suggest is a dose of fertilizer high in phospherous, and keep watering.

I would suggest hand polination but I have to agree with edweather it is getting very late. I live in Arizona and my melons are done. Not sure where you are at, but we only have about 2-3mo tell a freeze. Sorry
