Care & Growing Info 

Watermelons are warm-season annual vines and need a long warm season to mature. Watermelon needs plenty of room to grow as it sends out long vines 

Start them early, if you can. In temperate areas sow October - November, after all, the danger of frost; subtropical areas sow September - November; in tropical areas sow April - July, during the dry season. Sow directly where it is to grow 10 - 20mm deep, or start early in individual seedling pots, in cool areas bottom heat will be required. Seed germinates best at a soil temperature of 21 - 35° C. Seed will germinate in 7 - 14 days. Soil should be fertile, well-drained, with a pH of 6 - 6.5. 

Prepare your soil with compost and well-rotted manure; deep digging is beneficial. The soil needs to be well-drained. 

Space rows 1.5 m apart with 1m between plants on raised mounds. Avoid over-watering once the fruit is nearly ripe as this will make for a bland flavoured watermelon (also too much rain). 

Slide a flat piece of wood underneath ripening fruit on the ground to avoid rotting from contact with wet soil. Harvest when the melon slips easily from the stem. 

Harvest in 10-16 weeks. Compatible with (can grow beside) Sweetcorn, Sunflowers. And avoid growing close to Potatoes

Watermelon Heirloom mix

It too early to say as my "babies" are still in my little greenhouse. I'm actually more excited about the Heirloom pumpkin mix as I not only love the look of the many different pumpkins but love pumpkin as a food. I'm not a watermelon eater but I am trying to grow them for my daughter.
