Muskmelons and watermelons are produced in Ohio primarily for local consumption. Both products face competition from southern states.

Melons are warm-season crops that achieve prime quality when grown under warm, sunny conditions. Cool, cloudy weather results in melons with inferior quality. Melons prefer sandy and sandy loam soils. Production on plastic mulch and light soils produces an early crop that commands a premium price.
