Product Details

  • Botanical Name: Citrullus lanatus
  • Height: 15 - 24 inches
  • Spacing: "Carolina Cross" watermelon plants need about 12 feet in all directions to grow. Flatten the top of each hill. Hills work much like raised beds because the soil drains and warms faster than planting on level ground.
  • Depth: 1 inch deep when the soil temperature is about 68 degrees F.
  • Spread: 96-120 inches
  • Light Required: Full sun.
  • Foliage: Green foliage.
  • Days To Maturity: 89 days. Direct seed.
  • Zone: 3 - 9 annual
  • Form: Vine
  • Soil Requirements: well-drained, sandy soil, so you might also blend coarse sand and organic matter, such as leaf mold and shredded bark mulch, to increase soil porosity and drainage.
  • 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.
  • Comments: Enormous fruits are extra juicy. Dark and light green-striped rinds are bruise resistant and easy to handle. Huge melons grow to 200 lbs.!
