Tendersweet Orange Watermelon Seeds, Very Sweet, NON-GMO, Heirloom. 10 Seeds

Some Tips:

  1. Choose a sunny spot in your garden with well-drained soil. Watermelons need at least 6 hours of sunlight per day, and their roots need to be able to spread out easily.
  2. Amend the soil with compost or other organic matter. This will help to improve drainage and fertility.
  3. Warm the soil to at least 70 degrees Fahrenheit before planting. You can do this by covering the planting bed with black plastic mulch for a few weeks before planting.
  4. Sow the seeds directly in the ground, 1 inch deep and 2-3 feet apart. You can also start seeds indoors 2-3 weeks before your last frost date, and transplant them outdoors when the soil is warm enough.
  5. Thin the seedlings to one plant per hill. Do this when the seedlings have two or three true leaves.
  6. Watermelon plants need regular watering, especially during hot weather. Water deeply once a week, or more often if the weather is hot and dry.
  7. Fertilize the plants every two weeks with a balanced fertilizer.
  8. Mulch around the plants to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.
  9. Watermelon plants are susceptible to pests and diseases, so be on the lookout for problems. Common pests include aphids, cucumber beetles, and squash bugs. Common diseases include powdery mildew, anthracnose, and wilt.
  10. Watermelons are ripe when they have a deep green rind and sound hollow when thumped. Harvest the melons by cutting them from the vine with a sharp knife.
