      • Smaller melons and squashes

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

      This cradle will hold smaller squash and melons. Wish there was more than one prong/stake on the bottom so that it would sit evenly on hard surfaces. This is meant to stake into dirt or similar surfaces.

      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.

      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.

      cantaloupes are just coming in so I can't weigh in on how well they protect the fruit from rotting, but they are sturdy and attractive and look like they will do the job.
