Summer just wouldn't be summer without this mouthwatering treat! Watermelons are so good, you don't even need dessert! Fruits are a good source of vitamin C. And even small-space gardeners can grow compact varities.
Harvest Tip: Forget about thumping the fruits to see if they're ripe. Instead, check if the curling tendril closest to the stem has dried up - a singal of ripeness. Another sign of maturity is the color of the rind: It should be dull, not shiny, with a creamy-yellow underside.
Seed Count: 1/2 oz. contains about 125-140 seeds, sows a 100' row.
