  • Size: 10 Seed Packet

  • Soil Requirements: Sandy Soil
  • Seed Count: Approx. 10 seeds per packet; approx. 60-70 seeds per 1/4 oz.
  • Pruning: Thin the watermelon plant seedlings to leave only one or two plants in each hill, after the seedlings develop two leaf sets. Select the two best looking plants and either pull up the plants carefully or cut them back to the ground, using bypass pruners. This allows the plants to produce bigger and better fruits without having to compete with other plants for space and nutrients in the soil.
  • Foliage: Green foliage.
