We are growing a giant cantaloupe for the first time and I,m not seeing any females at a time and size of the plant where if it were a melon plant, females would have come up already.
I,ve givin it some bloom booster and plenty of other nutrients on top of a fertile soil and its growing like gangbusters, yet no females. Anyone ever have a similar problems with a cantaloupe? Or am I unfortunate and am I just growing a sterile plant?? Any thoughts or idea's are welcome.
