When to pick mango melon or vine peach
by: Megan

Mango melons or vine peaches are an old heirloom variety, previously called 'Vegetable Oranges'. They are smaller than most melons, about orange size, with sweet, slightly mango flavoured, white flesh.

You can pick your mango melons when green and turn them into pickles or preserves. Otherwise to pick when ripe, wait until the fruit separates from the vine with the mererest small tug. It takes around 80-90 days after planting seedlings for the mango fruit to be fully ripe.

After picking mango melons will keep for a long time, but once sliced, keep any leftovers covered in the fridge.

It just seemed to take so long to get to the sweet soft time.
