  1. hi Omar,
    it’s possible that the flowers didn’t get pollinated…if the fruit didn’t set. Or perhaps it’s too wet and the fruits rotted. What type of climate are you in?

  2. hi,
    I would like some tips on how and when to grow rockmelons .I tried to grow some last season ,but they did not go beyond the flowering tage. I should add,the seeds that i plantted, were of the egg- shaped watermelons which are of Central Asian origins.I would appreciate your your tips on this.
    Thanks you

  3. Hi Mohan, thanks for your suggestion! Yes, correct pH is very important, I will consider adding this information in future posts.

  4. Thanks for the beautiful pics. A good site indeed. I wish the pH of the soil was indicated along with the veges. This is important for the plants to take up the necessary minerals present in the soil.
