Having lived in Sturgis and Newell S.D. I ate plenty of these melons... So I dried some of the seeds one time about 5 years ago or longer? And decided to plant a few here in Arizona about 4 days ago....just to see if they would grow? Even put up a rabbit fence justincase... Well I'll be dipped in dog doo-doo if they have sprung up just very small greeery now is my question? How often to water? No water by nature here in the desert... I planted them ina very shady spot uner an overhang so not much sun lite... Will that matter? any thoughts?
