Watermelon - Crimson Sweet - Citrullus lanatus

Tender Annual Heirloom. Crimson Sweet has a tough, medium-thick, light-green rind with small, dark-green stripes. Its shape is blocky at 12" by 10" and weighing up to 25 pounds. Its bright, deep-red flesh is high in sugar content and has few, small seeds. It was an All-American Selections winner in 1964.

Soil & Water: Watermelon prefers light, loamy, fertile, deep, well-draining soil with a pH of 5.5-6.5. Add plenty of organic matter. Water plants amply until setting out, then water more sparingly. Mulch to prevent weed competition.

Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 2-3 weeks before the last frost or sow seeds directly after frost. Set out 3-4 transplants per hill, selecting the strongest two when vines are 1'-2' long. Watermelons are large vining plants that can take over an extensive garden space. They can be trellised, but use slings to support the developing fruit.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest melons when the tendril closest to the stem turns dry and brown and the stem becomes brittle. Eat fresh, freeze flesh in a honey-based syrup, or pickle the rind.

Did You Know? Watermelon is low in calories and is very nutritious. It is high in lycopene, second only to tomatoes!
