Mulch will keep moisture in the soil, and prevent the soil from cooling down, but if you add a big flat stone or bricks under each fruits, they will warm up during and prevent the temp from going down too fast at night.

My greenhouse is a plastic tunnel, but the rows are also covered w/ colored plastic mulch.. which for the peppers and tomatoes now still sees the sun (when it's out) but the melons totally cover the ground so the plastic mulch i think is not doing much for them.

We had a pretty cold spring this year too, low temps, clouds and rain. So they are coming in quite late. We were a bit impatient... My dad manage to get watermelon ripening in France by stacking stones and roof tiles under the fruits for them to be warmer during the night and speeding the ripening a bit. Maybe add heat storage to your greenhouse could help, especially if it's a plastic tunnel.

oh man, i'm not even sure if my greenhouse grown mini watermelons will ripen this year.. even in july we've had nearly 3 weeks of cloudy weather, our highest temperature of the year was 81F
