Fresh Fruit $1.79
Seed cost = $1.79 for 1 package.
Planted 6 seeds.
Yield = 6 fruits. Of those 6, 2 were rotten.
End result= a lot of work for 4 cantaloupe. The first one tasted slightly bland, not so sweet and it had a funny texture to it. I had found it unattached from the vine so I'm not sure how long it had been that way. After picking the second one I decided to leave it on the counter for a couple of days to further ripen. It was great, texture was like the store bought ones. Currently one on the counter and one on the vine.
Savings = approx. $6-7 dollars
Such is the lot of the backyard gardener.
