Planting & Care

Soil and 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 and 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 and 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.

Sweet!

Where I live isn't really noted for growing watermelons. My family said that they tried and hadn't gotten any real melons. I was determined though. These grew great I had three plants. I gave some melons away and even made jam. The flavor was excellent.

Only half the seeds that I planted sprouted...

I ordered these seeds along with others and received them super fast! I planted them and only half the seeds sprouted! I am excited to try the ones that did sprout!

Tastes great!

I grew 2 of these plants last year. Both plants did great in their plant growth, although not a lot of fruit. I got 3 in total, from 2 of the plants. They were just amazing tasting, just wish I got more fruit and larger in size as they were about 3-4" in diameter.
