Description / Melon Cradles - Set of 5


Such an easy solution to a problem that has vexed gardeners for generations: how to keep melons and squash from rotting on the ground as they ripen during wet weather? Melon Cradles lift the fruit just a few inches off the soil, improving the air circulation on all sides and preventing crawling pests from nibbling their way into your produce.

Constructed of galvanized steel with a smooth powder covering. The cradle has a long tapered spike at the base, so it slides easily into the soil and remains firmly upright. Just 6½ inches high, the cradles lift the fruit away from damp, unhealthy soil conditions without stretching or breaking the vine.

Measuring 7¾ inches in diameter, the cradle itself is cupped, like a shallow bowl, with widely-spaced supports that admit plenty of air and prevent rain from accumulating anywhere on your fruit. They will not impede the growth or change the shape of your melons and squash. Instead, they make it possible to grow fruit with no "bad side," no flattened or discolored or soft areas created by contact with soil, straw, or other surface.

You will wonder how you ever gardened without Melon Cradles. They nest for easy storage at season's end. Pick up several sets for your bumper crops.

NOTE: Always use caution when handling metal cradles as some edges may be sharp

Review by Luanne L
My melons haven't grown large enough yet to use them but I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of them and am looking forward to using them.
Keeps the melons dry
Review by Avid gardener
Easy to install, will hold up to an ice box size melon, Only reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is because there are sharp wires that extend beyond the cradle that could potentially pierce and damage the melon rind. The photos of this product conveniently don't show them, why the manufacturer didn't trim those wires flush with the cradle makes no sense. They are a hazard.
