Sunlight Needed to Grow Melons - Knowledgebase Question

Question by coleman532

I've got a spot in front of my house where I'd like to grow cantaloupes and watermelons. The site is in full sun from sunrise until about 12 or 1 pm, at which point it gradually moves into shade as the afternoon progresses. We get very hot summers here, and the afternoon sun is the most intense. Will I be able to successfully grow the melons in this spot?

Yes, although the melons would prefer full sun all day, they should produce fine for you in that location.

Thanks for the question!
