Crimson Sweet Watermelon - Garden Seed

Crimson Sweet Watermelon (Citrullus lanatus) is raved about by professional and at-home growers because of its reliable results and uncompromised flavor! High yields and consistent growth is prized because growing watermelon takes all summer long!

Crimson Sweet Watermelon is an annual in zones 3-9. If outside of these zones, consider growing indoors in a greenhouse. The plant will produce flowers over its growth cycle. It is best to deadhead these blooms to promote fruit growth.

Rap the surface of this watermelon. If it lets out a low thud, it is ready to harvest. If the sound is higher pitched, it’s not ready to be picked yet. Where the fruit meets the grown is a good place to check. If the bottom is cream or yellow, it is time to harvest.
