|please tell me what this is..in my flower bed because it came up and is taking over|
in a huge long vine..healthy with fruit coming on it..
If it is cantaloupe what do I do to take care of it till the cantaloupes are ready
in 16 weeks or when?
Do I need to have mulch under the tiny fruit as they grow to keep them from getting wet
dirt on the fruit when I water the perennial flowers around this vine and fruit on it?
thanks sheri in alabama

|Yeah, looks like a melon. It won't hurt to get dirt on the fruit but you don't want it sitting on soggy soil so mulch wouldn't be a bad idea. Some people set them on inverted pots.|

|thanks for your reply!|
Listen today I went out and there was this melon or gourd, can anyone tell me what this is...It has been a puzzle for all across the usa..they have said a cucumber
vine, t hen a cantaloupe and now this vine is going up the trellis and this is hanging from the vine off the trellis and more babies on the vine
Do I leave it or pull it all up to die?
I hate to kill anything living..however it is taking over the flower bed
but I can leave it..the rest of the summer..

|I guess you will have to let it mature and see what it is. Of course it could be a cross bred between some vining plants. |

|Could be but it looks just like my baby melons (cantaloupes). If it's in the way just pull it out quickly. Probably be another three weeks to a month before it matures otherwise.|
