Planting Depth: 1"

Seed Spacing: Sow Black Diamond Heirloom Watermelon seeds roughly 8' apart, keeping rows approximately 6' apart.

Nutrient Care Instructions: Apply SUPERthrive once per week. Soak in solution of 1/4 tsp per gal for 15 min. or longer depending on size and type.

Suggestions Chevron Down Chevron Forward

Choose a site with good drainage, good air circulation and full sun. Watermelon is ready to harvest when skin on underside turns yellow and a thump with your knuckles produces a hollow sound.
