    I had to look up what a hami melon was... I've never heard of it. You can always call a local farmer who grows them to get answers.

    Hi Walter, perhaps give a call to your County Extension Agent and provide a pic. They usually can provide good accurate information and assistance.

    Are you thinking there might be something wrong because the outer edges of the leaves are drooping?

    dear all, sorry to create confusion and really appreciate your kind feedback.

    recently i found that my melon leaves are curbing down along the edges and i believe they are not normal. nevertheless, the plants produced plenty of flowers and set many fruits. but, these fruits only grow for a couple of days then stop growing. i have no fruit! so, i need to know why? is this problem related to the leaves curbing? thanks again all of you!

    Oh dear Walter , so sorry. Curling leaf is usually caused by whiteflies and it;s pretty infectious for the plants. Sadly only older plants survive, but the infection that the whiteflies spread stays in their DNA. I would destroy all the plants. So sorry, that's probably not what you wanted to hear. The good news though is that you can create a new fresh batch of water melon plants from seeds really easily - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gid6hMTXpOA Make sure to buy the "Mommy" watermelon from a farmers market. The ones you often find in stores have been treated to not produce fertile seeds.

    Hello. Some of my tomatoes had cupped foliage due to weather conditions. Not sure of your location- planting zone, for the best local professional advice -I would highly suggest contacting your cooperative extension. These offices are manned by volunteer master gardeners on site there waiting to answer the communities questions that know your local situation quite well.

    Master gardeners are required to volunteer back designated hours ( plus continuing education) each year to maintain MG certification -this community outreach and education is their goal.


    If your office is closed....there Might be alternative online venues like Ask an Expert as well as emailing your local master gardeners extension office for their guidance.... in a non contact manner.

      sorry for not making my problem clear.

      i grow melon and this time i found that the leaves are different from what i have grown earlier. they curb downward as per picture shown. i see it something like a jelly fish in shape. or, just like your fingers when you bend to pick up something. hopefully you get what i try to elaborate.

      thanks!
