Questions about honeydew seeds.

Post  cienfuegos on 4/27/2011, 12:04 am

I ate a honeydew melon from guatemala that had a great size and was very sweet. Is there a way to know or find out if the seeds would produce the same fruit. this is my first year at this and I'm not too familiar with how to tell if something is a hybrid and wont give any fruit or edible fruit at that.

Thanks in advance,

Cienfuegos

PS I have honeydews planted already but this fruit was amazing and i want the seeds. The fruit sticker has the following info Guatemala/ Honeydew/ Mayan Pride Quality.

Probably the only way to tell is to plant and see what happens. If you've space or a spare container, go for it.

You could always start them in Vermiculite then you don't waste a square waiting for them to come up.
