Vine Peach spacing

Post  hruten on 4/18/2012, 12:42 pm

I got these seed free from a burgess order a couple of years ago, but after doing some research they look pretty cool. Only one question....

How many per square?

I read on some other websites that it grows something like a cucumber...anyone know?

Thanks

Vine Peach Cantaloupe is....

Post  hruten on 4/18/2012, 5:47 pm

According to multiple websites. Vine Peach cantaloupe grew naturally in and before colonial America. It was a favorite wild fruit of Native Americans. The plant is a cantaloupe but produces a peach size and colored fruit. The texture and taste are likened to a mango. It is an heirloom and vine grower.

It can be used for anything any other fruit is used for. Pies, jellies, salads, etc. Like I said, it sounds really intriguing and since I have the seeds... why not?

The name was deceiving, like my Garden Peach is really a tomato.

Since its a cantaloupe and you don't know how vigorous, I would give it 2 outside squares per plant, add a strong trellis, and see what happens. Sounds fascinating. You'll have to tell us how it tastes.

My vine peach plants are off to a good start, but I've never grown them before. Anybody else have any experience with these?

No experience, but I think as a first venture I would space them like a melon, which in my case is 1/SF. But some folks do 1/two SF. That is what the book recommends for melons, is 1 per 2 SF. But I am gonna let them sprawl.....

Keep us posted? Would love to hear about this! I am growing 3 types of melons for the fist time ever! 2 musk melons and a watermelon. Loves me some fruit

"Loves me some fruit, too."  Very Happy I spaced mine 1 per sf at the back so they could climb. I'll post a pic, later. I'm also growing 2 other cantaloupe varieties, too. One is already starting to bloom even though it's not even a foot long -- ambitious little guy.  Cool

Fun! I would love to hear how it goes! I am super excited about the melons!
