Saved my Cantaloupe!!

By Chris B

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

Have bought several sets of the cradles. As soon as a fruit is 2 to 3 inches in diameter it goes in a cradle! This past season I did not have any losses of fruit due to mold from too much rain. Also there was no splitting of the fruit. Great product.

a good solution to having heavy vegetables (squash and eggplants) lying in the dirt where they can rot.

Keeps the bugs from feasting on the bottom of my melons!

By Kaki

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

Since raising the melons off the ground, the bugs have not been feeding on the bottom of my melons. The shape is better for cantelopes and honeydews than for watermelons.

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

Never knew that this existed and decided to try melons in the garden this year. The only melons that had brown spots were the ones that didn't end up on one of these lovely little cradles. Will definitely buy more for next year.

      We are having a cold wet year here, and these are placed under my icebox watermelon to keep them off the ground and safe from rotting. Seem to work very well.
