Melon Diva F1 Grafted Plants
A great variety for the UK, this Charentias type of Italian melon has been bred to cope with cooler climates. Its bright orange flesh is deliciously sweet and succulent and plants crop well during summer. Best grown under cover to get the best results.
Grafted vegetable plants offer us gardeners’ plants which have greater vigour and much more resistance to soil borne pests and diseases, such as nematodes – particularly useful if you grow in the greenhouse border soil each year, where crop rotation is somewhat limited! The grafting process brings together the best attributes of two different plants – a species rootstock and a hybrid variety. The hybrid variety is grafted to the species rootstock to produce plants which are strong and vigorous, which in turn, produce more fruits and heavier yields. Although traditionally greenhouse grown, we have found, over the last few years, that plants, if placed in a warm and sunny position, will also crop well outside too – even more reason to grow them!
Supplied as well established plants in 9cm pots. Please note – do not remove the plastic grafting clip. It will fall off naturally as the plant grows.
