General Information: Ambrosia melon is an exotic melon hybrid that might be confused with a cantaloupe, but it’s quite different.
Its flesh is very sweet, tender and pale orange in color, with a flavor described as “a combination of all melons, plus flowers.”

Idea & Tips: Melons need a constant supply of water, and particular attention should be paid during summer dry spells.
They are rarely bothered by pests and disease.
It's best to rotate your melon crops each year, ensuring that you are not planting melons in the same spot each year.
