Ask a Question About Trifecta Melon (Pre-Order)
Answer this question
How do I know when the melon is ready to pick?
Ripe melons turn from green to tan-yellow, and smell very aromatic. Ripe melons also slip off the vine when you press lightly on the vine next to the melon (this is called harvesting at full slip, which is appropriate for Trifecta). Trifecta is a good keeper so you don't have to worry about the melons going bad in the field as long as you check a couple times a week.
