Description

Watermelon - Early Moonbeam - Citrullus lanatus

Tender annual Heirloom. Yellow-fleshed with a thin rind from 5-8 pounds. One of the best melons for northern climates. Flavor your summer with this sweet, early, and productive watermelon.

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

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.
