Excerpt from Melon Culture a Practical Treatise on the Principles Involved in the Production of Melons, Both, for Home Use and for Market: Including a Chapter on Forcing and One on Insects, and Diseases and Means of Controlling the Same

Melon growing has come to be an industry of vast proportions in this country, few people having any adequate conception of the extent of the industry. There is scarcely a state in the Union in which the melon does not play a more or less conspicuous part in its vegetable productions. Even Canada, which is generally considered as being too far north for melon growing, produces some surprisingly fine melons, especially in the eastern portion, where they are grown quite extensively under frames. The United States is, however, the principal field for outdoor melon culture, and it is to this section mostly that the following pages are intended to apply.

The results of the census of 1910 are not yet available, but, basing our calculations on the report of the Census Bureau of 1900, and making a fair allowance for increase in acreage and production during the last decade, we now have in the United States in round numbers 290,000 acres devoted to melon growing. This is divided between the muskmelon and the watermelon in the proportion of about one to three. The yearly production, according to these estimates, would be about 175,000,000 muskmelons and 225,000,000 watermelons, or more than four melons to each person in the United States. We see, therefore, that this is no mere market garden crop, but that it covers vast areas. Commercially speaking, therefore, it may be classed among the farm crops of the present day.
