Perfect for keeping melons and pumpkins off the ground!

Comments about : Melon and Squash Cradles, Set of 6:

I am using this for Sugar Baby watermelons, Honeydews, even a Jarrahdale pumpkin. They work perfectly, allowing air to circulate around the fruit and let them ripen evenly.

smaller than I thought

Comments about : Melon and Squash Cradles, Set of 6:

These seem sturdy and can be used for smaller squash, melons, but not for bigger pumpkins. They are oval in shape so only fit certain shaped veggies.

Comments about : Melon and Squash Cradles, Set of 6:

I originally bought them to hold up my buttercup squash when the come in , but I don't seem to need at this point. But I did use them to support other plants and it worked great! I like it for one reason the spike is not that long, but yet provides great support.
