        First time growing melons

        By JJDoubleK

        from Atlanta

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Keeps Fruit Off Ground
        • Lightweight
        • Simple to use

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Cantalopes
          • Honeydew
          • Low-hanging Large Tomato
          • Pumpkins

          Super simple to use. Simply push into the ground below the melon and ta da! All done. Kept the melons off the ground and allowed for drainage. The fruit stayed round. This is the first time I have tried to grow melons and this was easy. Except for the fact my vines seemed to die back before all the fruit was ready but certainly not the fault of this easy product.

                I've purchased these as gifts and for myself, they work great.
                At first glance my sister and girlfriend looked at me like I was
                crazy for getting them these but as soon as they used them
                the first season I received a thumbs up from both of them.
                This is my third purchase of these.

                • To Keep Melons Clean

                I love the spike bottom. It is so easy to push into the clay. As of now I do not know how to improve on this except on the weight they hold.

                        Best Uses

                          Works well. Seems sturdy enough for multiple years of use. Smaller than thought but works just fine for large melons.

                                Just put the first 6 of 36 that I purchased into use. These are smaller than I had envisioned and should work with small lopes and squash. However, I am not sure how well they will do with larger items such as watermelons.

                                      Have not used them yet, but they look like they will do the trick.. I bought extras to give as a birthday gift to a friend whose melons get waterlogged from laying on the wet ground.
