Early, personal-sized watermelon for small spaces. This AAS winner has short 3-4 foot vines and can produce up to 4-5 fruits per plant weighing in around 4-7 lbs. A thin but strong rind envelops a deep red interior with a high sugar content resulting in sweet, juicy flesh. Crack and split resistance.

Mini Love Watermelon (F1 Hybrid 70 Days)

 

PLANTING

Citrullus lanatus

Germination: 4-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/2" deep

Sowing Indoors: 3-4 weeks before the last frost. Provide 70-85ºF soil temperature. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot. Sowing into individual biodegradable peat/cow pots reduces root damage when transplanting. Transplant after last frost, 36-48" apart.

Sowing Outdoors: After the last frost when the soil temperature is over 70ºF. 

How much does a packet plant: 18-20 foot single row, 5-6 hills

Harvest: Look for the following signs as it does take some practice on telling when they are ready to harvest. The closest tendril to the stem dries, there is a crack in the stem that attaches the watermelon to the vine, where the watermelon touches the ground it should be a butter yellow color, give it a knock with your hands it should sound hollow, the skin is dull, and slipping of the stem from the melon with slight finger pressure.

Tips:  Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost or well-rotted manure, and keep well watered. They benefit from growing on black plastic and by using row covers for weed, insect control, and more rapid growth.

Sweet

Grew them for the first time this year. I planted 3 plants, and got about 3 per plant. Will grow more next year. They are so sweet and juicy.
