Anyone had success with Cantaloupes?
I'm going to be planting - at last count - 16 different Cantaloupe melons (not the netted kind, those are muskmelons, not cantaloupes) in hopes of finding a variety that will do well around here. (This extreme measure is due to the fact that I've been unable to grow nary a melon to full term for the past two seasons.) Here being the hourglass sands of the Wautoma area. I'm looking for the names of varieties that some of you may have grown around here with success.
On a side note, I was wondering if you call them Muskmelons or Cantaloupes. Growing up, we always called the netted melons muskmelons as is correct, but I've found crates of muskmelons in stores mislabeled "Cantaloupes." In doing research, I've found that in America that it is common for people to misname muskmelons as cantaloupes. I'm curious to find out if maybe calling them muskmelons is a regional thing...you know like "bubbler," or if I'm in the minority.
