Cantaloupe Microgreen Seeds Highlights

  • Germination: 3 to 5 days
  • Soak: No.
  • Harvest: 10 to 12 (best if on the younger side).
  • Flavor: A mixture between honeydew and cucumber. The leaves are juicy and best eaten younger than older. You can use them in salads, snacks, or drinks.
  • Nutrients: High in Vitamin C, they also contain vitamins A and K, plus minerals, calcium, and potassium, along with anti-oxidants.

Cantaloupe microgreen seeds can be sown on the surface of the soil and placed in a weighed blackout. No problems with seed hulls staying on the microgreens.

I found cantaloupe microgreen seeds a bit slow to germinate, but once they start growing, the process speeds up.

Unlike other microgreen varieties, cantaloupe microgreens grow better if left in the blackout a day later than you would expect. Rooting was better, and although the greens looked knocked down, they soon sprung back upright.

Cantaloupe microgreens are best eaten younger than when they get older. At the latest, harvest them as the first true leaf forms. After that point, the leaves become hairy. Although they still taste good, the texture isn’t for everyone.

In an earlier stage, the leaves are plump and juicy. They are not quite as firm as sunflower shoots but are still great for snack use.

The flavor is a mixture between honeydew or young cantaloupe and cucumbers.

I haven’t tried it, but I think cantaloupe microgreens could be blended with other smoothie vegetables and fruits.

How Much Seed Do You Need For Your Tray?

Seeding Density

Seeding Density for Cantaloupe Microgreen Seeds

By Weight

Home Microgreens Tray: 5.5 grams 1010 Tray: 14.7 grams 1020 Tray: 1-ounce

By Measuring Spoon

Home Microgreens Tray: 0.9 Tablespoons 1010 Tray: 2.3 Tablespoons 1020 Tray: 4.7 Tablespoons

All volumetric measurements are level, not heaping spoons.

I use these vertical-sided measuring spoons because the seeds are easier to level with the straight sides.

These are my recommended seeding densities to produce a great-looking tray of cantaloupe microgreens.

I like to allow microgreen leaves to develop to a larger size as they provide more nutrition & flavor than producing smaller leaves and stems.

Microgreen density depends on many environmental factors and seed germination percentages.

You may prefer to modify the seeding density, but my seeding densities are a great starting point if nothing else.

Check out the Home Microgreens Seed Density Course if you have a different size tray.


28.35 grams equals 1 ounce.
