Beautiful cantaloupe plant, larger than any I have ever received. Can't wait to for harvest.:)

From Ava | May 10, 2022

Great costumer service!

Upon arrival there was a broken branch on two of the plants. I called GrowJoy to alert them. After speaking with a lady there she assured me all would be well and if it wasn't they would take care of It. So far plants are doing great. We are most pleased. Thanks

Plants arrived well packaged. I transplanted into my garden upon arrival. Plants are growing and look great. I have never tried to grow cantaloupe before, so time will tell.

usually wonderful

I didn't get many cantaloupes this year but my garden is new (we just moved to this house)and the soil not completely prepared. the ones that did produce was great, hopefully next year the soil will do better for the plants.

Replacements Arrived Ready to Go!

Had our garden out and thriving before kids let our dairy goats into the garden area....The goats REALLY enjoyed the first garden, thankfully GrowJoy was able to get new plants to us right away so we will again have beautiful Cantaloupe this fall.
