      • Protects Ripening Vegetab

      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.

                        • 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.

                          My only regret is that I didn't purchase more than I did. I really needed a dozen. Keep up the good work!

                            Smart idea; I just starting using them. They are recommended for melons but I might use them for all kinds of vegetables/fruits.

                                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.

                                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.
