How cantaloupe production in greenhouse?
rahil, , Posted: 18/04/2011
Canteloupe melon can be be grown in a greeenhouse, pinching out the main shoot when small and training the two side shoots up strings or canes. The melon flowers need pollination by air movement or gentle tapping once a day when open.
The fruiting shoots can also be allowed to trail on the floor of the greenhouse or cold frame.

Yes, they are related but do not interfere with each other.
melons in a polytunnel
I have raised some melon plants. ('Fast Break' and 'Charentais') Should I treat them the same way as cucumbers, or do they need any special care

Melons can be grown up strings or left on the ground. They can be left to grow but usually they are trained to keep them tidy by pinching out the groing point. Two side shoots develop and these are trained on strings by winding them around. The side shoots from these shoots carry the fruits.
