[Market-farming] Espom salts on melons?

Since everyone seems to want to talk about something, I thought I'd toss a
question out here.
Saw in Nolte's Produce Supply catalog the notation that "spray your melons
with Epsom salts to make them sweeter."
Never done this - I've added Epsom salts to the planting hole for peppers
and tomatoes and seen a real improvement in fruiting, but hadn't heard about
this for melons.
Do people do this? In the planting hole and/or foliar feeding when the
melons are about ripe?
Discuss and thanks for your input!
