Honeydew, Rockmelons and Watermelons are the most commonly grown melons in Australia. These large, roundish fruits, believed to have originated from central Asia, range anywhere from half a kilogram to several kilograms in weight, varying in colour from whitish cream, yellow to light green. Melons have a soft, sweet, fleshy centre, encased in a thick rind which grows on vigorous trailing vines.

Optimum response to fertilisers will only be achieved when weeds, insect pests and diseases are controlled and adequate soil water is available.

Fertiliser use recommendations are presented as a practical guide to good agronomic practice under most situations. Local soil, climatic and other conditions should also be taken into account as these could affect plant response to fertiliser rates and applications.

For further information we recommend you seek advice from your local agronomist.
