What a wonderful flavour! The thick, pale green flesh of this Galia-type melon has a rich, almost tropical aroma and taste. Diplomat Honeydew is tolerant to powdery mildew as well. Fruits from Diplomat honeydew seeds are almost round, with fine netting and weigh about 2.2-2.8kg (5-6lbs) on a strong vine. Trellis these vines or let them sprawl on the ground. The Large Cucumber Trellis would work well for Diplomat. Grow in full sun, and do everything you can to increase heat around the plants. Black plastic mulch works well, building and trapping solar energy in the soil for warmer roots and less evaporation.
Matures in 80 days. (Hybrid seeds)
