In case of favorable weather, Hungarian melons can enter the markets in mid-July, the president of the Hungarian Melon Growers’ Association told MTI on Thursday.

Göcző Mátyás said that previously grafted watermelons could be planted from the first days of April, but this was not possible last year or this year. And in May, it was not uncommon for mornings to be 6-8 degrees, which resulted in further slippage.

According to the current outlook, those who grow under foil or in a greenhouse will be able to offer Hungarian melons from June 20, but this means a negligible quantity, he noted. (MTI)
