🌱How to Plant🌾
1. Choose a planting location: Choose a warm, sunny place for melon pear. It is usually most suitable to plant outdoors, but in the cold season, seedlings can be cultivated indoors.
2. Prepare the soil: Melon pear requires fertile, well-drained soil. You can add organic fertilizer to the soil to improve soil texture.
3. Planting: If you are starting from seed, sow the seeds into the soil and then cover lightly with soil. If you choose seedlings, carefully transplant the seedlings into the prepared soil.
4. Water: Keep the soil moist, but avoid overwatering. Melon pear needs the right amount of moisture, but doesn't like over-soaking.
5. Pruning: Once the melon pear begins to grow, consider pruning and thinning the leaves to promote better ventilation and light entry.
6. Provide support: Since the branches and leaves of melon pear can be very long, you can provide support, such as a fence or bamboo pole, to prevent them from falling over.
7. Prevent pests and diseases: Check plants regularly to prevent the emergence of pests and diseases. Take control measures as needed.
8. Harvest: Melon pear usually matures within a few months of the end of the growing season. They should become sweet and juicy and ready to harvest when ripe.
9. Winter care (for cold climate areas): If you are growing melon pear in a cold climate, consider protecting the plant from cold damage.
Melon pear is suitable for planting in warm climates, preferably in tropical, subtropical and warm places such as Asia, South America, Australia and New Zealand. In cold or boreal climates, additional protective measures, such as growing in a greenhouse, are needed to ensure that plants are not harmed by freezing.
