Q.how to increase muskmelon yield
Can you trim (and how so) a muskmelon plant to increase fruit yield? We have a plant with 6 developing fruit near the base with a lot of flowers/very small fruit further down the vines but no sign of any of the distal fruit developing. Is there a trimming technique to stimulate more of the fruit to mature?
Yes, you can prune the vines.
Though the link below is about watermelon, the same technique will apply.
