How to Use

  1. Choose a sunny location with well-draining soil for planting your watermelon seeds.
  2. Prepare the soil by removing weeds, breaking up any large clumps, and amending with compost or well-rotted manure for added fertility.
  3. Sow seeds directly in the soil, 2 to 3 cm deep, and space them at least 60 cm apart, with rows 100-120 cm apart.
  4. Water the seeds well after planting, and keep the soil consistently moist throughout the growing season.
  5. Offer support for the vines by using a trellis, or allow them to spread out on the ground if space allows.
  6. Harvest your watermelons once they have reached their full size and developed a uniform colour, typically 80-100 days after planting.

Aqua Gardening Suggests These are Best For

Watermelon Long Type Seeds are best for home gardeners and small-scale organic growers who love to enjoy delicious, home-grown fruits during the summer season. They are particularly suitable for those who have limited space, as the elongated shape of these watermelons takes up less space than round varieties. Additionally, they are perfect for anyone seeking healthier and eco-friendly alternatives to conventionally grown produce.
