A sweet juicy flesh, fine-textured round watermelon with a few seeds, it is relatively quick to grow, producing small fruits weighing up to 4kg, 15-20cm (6-8in) across. 

Harvest in approx 12-14 weeks, which is quite quick! Since this variety is early maturing, it is suited to cooler climates and drought resistance. 

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

Sorry haven't planted them yet!!!

I have been so busy I have not yet planted the watermelon seeds. All the other seeds I purchased have been great so far. Only trouble was I opened the poppy seed packet too wide and they all blew away!
