I have a problem.
I plan this year for the first time, to grows squash, cantaloupe, watermelons, and pumpkins. I have been to several different garden stores and have been told that squash plants can not be grown with cantaloupes because they cross pollinate and create bitter cantaloupes while other stores tell me pumpkins and cantaloupes can not be grown together because they too can cross pollinate causing bitter cantaloupe.
I have so far found room for the squash and watermelon on another side of my garden but if I grow cantaloupes and pumpkins together in the same patch, will it affect the taste of the cantaloupe or the pumpkin?
The cantaloupe will be the Hearts of Gold type and the pumpkin is the Sugar Pumpkin.
