Planting & Care

Soil & Water: Watermelon prefers light, loamy, fertile, deep well-draining soil with a pH of 5.5-6.5. Add plenty of added 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.

Great product

So far so good! Super fast sprouting! Strong root came out of the rock wool starter cube, like a dragon searching for water. Transplant outside was flawless, no visible stress. At first set of leaves after cotyledon. Hoping the heat holds. Thanks Peaceful Valley!
