                        Nice and simple -- keep the fruits from lying on the ground and getting moldy or misshapen. Plus, takes some stress off of vines that are hanging low from trellises, when you can support the heavy fruit -- have even used one for a bunch of tomatoes when I couldn't tie up the stem! Good product.

                        • Just the right size

                        Cons

                          Best Uses

                            These were handy for keeping my buttercup & other winter squash up off the ground. Also used for small melons. Only thing I would recommend would be to add about 2 more pegs (rather than the single center peg) to keep the cradle from tipping over when something causes a melon to shift (wind, heavy rain, etc.). Otherwise, these were really handy and I'm glad I bought 2 sets.

                              Nice product. I am using them to keep cucumbers off the ground while they ripen. The cradles are lightweight and made of plastic material that dries quickly and doesn't attract dirt.

                                          We are using them to hold our small watermelons along with pumpkins and cantaloupes. We are seeing that our melons do not have any rot or brown spots with the cradles.
