What is the difference between small sugar pumpkins and muskmelon seedlings? I planted them mext to each other and I can't tell which ones are which. I was wondering if you could describe the difference. Thank you!:)

Wow, you've got a real puzzle to solve. Pumpkins should have a star shaped stem and muskmelons should have a rounded stem. Check the fruit where it meets the stem and you'll probably be able to tell the plants apart. Enjoy your harvest!
