  • Melon – Blenheim Orange

    £5.99
    (3 Plants)

    Traditional melons that are juicy and full of flavour

    This is a lovely old variety of melon that is easy to grow at home, although it will need to be planted in a greenhouse or polytunnel for best results as they need a fairly consistent temperature around 20-25c. It needs quite a bit of space to grow, so if growing in a container make sure it’s a large one. You can let the plants scramble on the ground or provide a trellis or similar for them to climb.

    Number of plants: 3 plug plants

    Variety: Blenheim orange

    In the kitchen: This one is simple – just slice it up and enjoy on a hots summers day. Works beautifully as part of a tropical fruit salad but also goes well with cheese
