Granddaughter and I planted some cantaloupe seeds from a cantaloupe that we ate last May. Vines grew and we have 6 cantaloupe. Picked one and opened it up. Looks good but has no flavor. What did we do wrong? We live in Morris County, New Jersey. Hope you can help.

Cantaloupe flavor depends upon environmental conditions. High rainfall or excessive irrigation as the cantaloupes near maturity will adversely affect fruit flavor. Also, diseases which reduce the vigor of the plant and the leaves' ability to produce sugar will affect fruit flavor. Maintaining the plants in a healthy growing condition and avoiding excessive watering near maturity will improve cantaloupe flavor.
