WATERMELONS Approximately 200 seeds per oz.
CULTURE: In early summer, till soil. Sow 2-3 seeds, 1/2-1″ deep, 18-24″ apart in a row spacing of 4-5′. After emergence, thin to 1 healthy plant per hill. Keep soil moist and weed free. Seeds can also be started indoors in Pro-trays or similar pots. Place 2 seeds per pot. Germinate at 75-80F. Transplant outdoors after plants have 3 true leaves. You will need 3,500 to 4,000 plants per acre. HARVEST: Now here the fun begins!! There are 3 ways to tell when your watermelon is ripe: 1) tendril nearest point of vine where fruit stem attaches is browning, 2) Spot where fruit rests on ground has turned yellow, 3) The classic mystery you hear PLUNK ” verses ” PLINK or PLANK ” when you flick your finger. Good luck and enjoy!!!
