What would you do with these melons?
I planted some cantaloupe and watermelon in late May. They grew well at first and set fruit. I got one delicious cantaloupe before it got too hot and everything started rotting on the vine before they ripened. Dawn suggested sunscald and I think she was right as it would rot on the top part, and not the end or underside. Anyway, the plants are growing well and have blossoms and now that its a bit cooler I think they will probably start setting fruit again. The problem is, if that happens, is there enough time for them to ripen? Or should I pull them and plant something else? The varieties I planted are Hearts of Gold (cantaloupe) and Sugar Baby (watermelon).
