Cucamelon tips: Start cucamelons inside in pots and plant either outside once all danger of frost has passed or for best results in a polytunnel or glasshouse in April/ May. Keep well watered. Cucamelon need a support structure on which they can climb on, they will get up to 2m tall. They might be slow to take off but when they do, they won’t stop giving. Fruits are ready for harvest when about 1inch long and still firm.
