Melon 'Outdoor Wonder' F1 Hybrid
Cucumis meloCustomer Rating
True to its name, Melon ‘Outdoor Wonder’ is ideal for growing outdoors through black plastic or under cloches. This Galia type reliably produces pale green fleshed melons even in less than perfect British summers, and has good mildew resistance too. The tennis ball sized fruits are the perfect size for a one person serving! Height and spread: 2m (6’, 6").
Melons require high temperatures and humidity. In all but the very warmest areas cultivation is most successful in a greenhouse, or under cover of a cold frame or cloche when growing melons in the UK.More info
Actinida arguta, Tara VineGrape-sized, yellow-green fruits with very thin 'fuzzless' skins are produced in ‘September’ and ‘October’ on vigorous twining stems. With a flavour that is generally sweeter than regular varieties, these unusual fruits are delicious eaten whole and don’t even need to be peeled! This hardy Tara vine is self fertile, so you can grow it alone, without the need for a male pollinating plant. Height: 7m (22’). Spread: 5m (16’).
Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
