Growing great!

Seeing a lot if fruit. I used cattle panels as a trellis to keep fruit off the hound and the plants love it!

Planted these cantaloupe after arrival and they are spreading like wildfire. Already have blooms. Can't wait to time to harvest. Highly SPPB5

Ambrosia Cantelope is Outstanding

This was our first year buying from GrowJoy. We were very pleased with the Ambrosia Cantelope. We normally bought Tuscan at the grocery store when we could find it. Growing Ambrosia is now our favorite. While the first few melons took a while to grow, all of a sudden we had a large crop from the same 2 plants. The flavor was outstanding!

Really nice plant

This plant arrived quickly during the proper planting time. It’s planted and thriving beautifully. I can’t wait to see the harvest!

The ambrosia canteloupe plants we ordered from GrowJoy are wonderful. We had one plant arrive damaged that did not survive, but GrowJoy reimbursed for that plant. The remaining plants have grown wonderfully over the last months and we have an amazing crop of cantaloupe (15-20 melons on 2 plants!). I can't seem to attach a picture but the vines are lush, the cantaloupe plentiful, and proving to be just as delicious as we had hoped. Thank you so much GrowJoy!

I am amazed at how well these are growing and I have an amazing amount of cantaloupes growing and they are delicious

I got them late this year :(

Was not too happy at the date that I got my plant. I ordered may 5th and I got them well after June 9th! But the plant is doing well in spite of it being put in so late, I MIGHT order next year...not sure tho..

Plants arrived in good shape, transplanted next day and 60 days later the first one ripened. These are probably the best tasting cantaloupe I have ever had, beautiful fruit too.

Shipping containers are great absolutely no damage, plants are very large and ready to plant. It's why I always do business with GrowJoy for ten years now

From David | May 07, 2020


First time ordering from GrowJoy and I am impressed! Cantaloupe plants were shipped on time and packaged perfectly for transplant to my raised bed! Can’t wait for harvest time!!

From Brian | May 04, 2020


I placed this cantaloupe plant next to my Faerie Watermelon plant in my raised garden in a rich soil amended with cow manure and premium bagged soils. It took off in a flash!
