Anyone grown cucamelons as seen on allotment challenge ?

Recommended Posts

Looks like planting outside could be the way to go then.

I will try outside next year.

I think the person on allotment challenge grew them outside too.

try putting them in pots of dry-ish potting compost or sharp sand they need to be about 10inch pots and put them under the bench in the potting shed or greenhouse not on a concrete floor through and they need to be frost free but not overly warm and well ventilated so they don't sweat otherwise they'll either go mouldy or rot

Many thanks for the good advice, all new stuff for me, so fingers crossed that they will be good to grow next spring.

Seems to have done the trick.

I'm already working on ideas of how to get maximum crop next year.

Wow - that's some root system going there!

 

Well good luck with the alternative version. You can only try.
