I started a bunch of melons seeds and rootstocks for grafting a little over a week ago. They came up great! Unfortunately a mouse got into the greenhouse and mowed most everything down in one night. I started some more. I plan on growing three hybrid CCxJBD this year. They are a Chris Kent creation. A really pretty melon. I plan on growing one of his 52 Kent's (Black seeds) that that he pollinated with his 302 and he did the reverse of that where he put his 52 Kent pollen into a 302 Kent CC . (these have white seeds) I hope to grow one of each, thank you Chris for the seeds. I also plan to grow a melon from my f3 generation CCxJBD seeds. Either a 188 or 206.
I also plan to plant a Carolina Cross. The mouse ate my 146.5 Young. So we will see what goes in the ground. I also look forward to growing my first ever giant cantaloupe. Thank you Doug English for the seed.
