Saturno Melon is a hybrid, honeydew melon variety that produces high-quality melons with a beautiful appearance and even better taste! This melon variety has vigorous plants that are resistant to powdery mildew and fusarium wilt. Plants are high-yielding with concentrated harvests for maximum production.

Saturno Melon has a smooth exterior with no netting. The outside of the fruits have a creamy white color while the inside reveals a light green flesh that’s crisp and sweet. Melons have a tight seed cavity, which results in more delicious melon flesh than other varieties.

Melons may be direct seeded or transplanted. For direct seeding, we recommend planting seeds every 12″ along the intended row to ensure a good stand. Once plants emerge, thin plants to one every 2 feet. Melons can be susceptible to plant diseases if excess leaf moisture is present. As a result, we recommend using drip irrigation on watermelons to reduce leaf moisture and feed plants more effectively. During periods of heavy rainfall, using a fungicide like Liquid Copper can help to alleviate disease pressure as well.

Melons also perform well when transplanted. In early spring, we recommend transplanting to get a jump start on the growing season. Melon prefers warmer temperatures for seed to germinate. By transplanting, you can have plants in the ground before the soil temperature warms enough to direct seed. We recommend starting transplants 4-5 weeks before the desired outdoor planting date.

Melon transplants grow great in our heavy-duty seed starting trays, where they develop a solid root ball with roots that are trained to grow downward. Plants are ready to go in the ground when they can be easily pulled from the cells in the seed starting tray. Melons are ready to harvest when the tendril near the fruit completely dries. The tendril can be found between the fruit stem and the fruit. It is usually curly and green, but will dry when fruits are ready to harvest.
