Cantaloupe
Q.

My cantaloupe plants are producing fruit but the leaves are drying out. Will the fruit be okay or are they doomed?

The plants initially were really green with lots of flowers but once the plant set fruit, parts of the vines started dying off. The fruit has gotten larger but Some are starting to turn yellow, others seem okay. First time growing these and just not sure what to do.

It appears that your plant is starting to go through its finishing process! This is the time that your cantaloupe will ripen and get themselves ready to pick.
