Watermelon Culture

After all danger of frost and when the soil temperature reaches 60°F, sow 5-6 seeds 2-3" apart in hills 6-8' apart each way. Thin to 2 or 3 plants per hill. For an even earlier crop, sow 3 to 5 seeds in a peat pot in early May and plant out in early June. This should give you melons two weeks earlier than when directly sown. 1/2 oz. contains about 125 seeds.

Why Grow Hybrid Watermelons?

Hybrid watermelons are well-shaped and uniform. The flesh texture is always crisp and without fiber (this is what makes for outstanding flavor), and built-in disease tolerance means hybrid watermelons give a continuous production and more fruit. Pick watermelons when the little tendril in the stem turns brownish and starts to dry and when the skin color on the underside of the watermelon turns from whitish to cream color.
