How to grow cantaloupe from seeds (Cucumis melo) 哈密瓜種子孵法
It is very easy to grow cantaloupe from seeds. It takes longer than 2 weeks which is a lot longer than other type of melons. Unless your growing soil is very rich in nutrients and in very sunny location otherwise one plant only allow it to growing 3-4 fruit; one plant is better only allow one fruit growing if growing in pot. It is an excellent project to do with kids! 🙂
哈密瓜很容易從種子種出. 孵種的時間至少2週,比其他的瓜類種子需時更久些. 因為結實很耗肥,地植一株只讓結3-4果;盆植最好一株只讓結一果,除非你有很肥沃的土壤全日照的在種植. 這個種植會是個和小朋友一起學習的很好的作物. 🙂
1.I used seeds from seed packet. Prepare moist growing soil for the seeds to germinate. Keep moist and warm in partial shade location. Seeds germinate in about 2 weeks.
1.我用的是種子包的種子. 準備好苗盆和土壤,澆灌後播種. 在半日照環境中保溫保溼,約2週種子會發芽.
2.Transplant the seedlings when they have 6-8 leaves, best in ground in sunny location, the second best is in a large pot with rich soil in full sun area. Apply organic fertilizer. Same plant will have both male and female flowers. Only 3-4 fruit for each plant when growing in the ground and only allow one fruit each plant when growing in pot.
2.小苗長到6-8片本葉後可以移植,最好是地植在全日照肥沃的土壤中,若無法地植,全日照盆植次之,必須用肥沃的有機土來種植. 並開始施肥. 哈密瓜是公母異花同株. 地植一株只讓結3-4果,盆植最好一株只讓結一果 一株一果為佳.
Pollinate the male to female flower for growing fruit. The best time to do so is in the morning.
