Product Information Chevron Down Chevron Forward

Charleston Grey Watermelon seeds are a long-time favorite of gardeners everywhere.

Cut through the pale green, finely-veined rind to find bright red, exceptionally sweet, crisp flesh inside.

It's a high-yielding variety trusted for its beauty and quality, providing melons weighing up to 30 pounds each harvesting season.

These organic watermelon seeds are perfect for gardeners who desire sweetness and juiciness!

The Charleston Grey Watermelon can be picked confidently when you hear a hollow sound. Tap the side lightly with your fist to tell if the melons are ripe. A hollow sound means they're ready.

Instructions Chevron Down Chevron Forward

Start watermelon seeds indoors 4 weeks before transplanting outdoors. Take care not to disturb roots when transplanting. Or, sow a few seeds over a hill 9"-12" tall and 2' across. When the plants are 3" tall, thin by cutting to 3 plants per hill. Use a balanced fertilizer to increase yield.

Planting Depth: 0.5"

Seed Spacing: Sow Sugar Baby Heirloom Watermelon seeds roughly 5' apart in rows, 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. They're ready to harvest when the skin on the underside turns yellow and when a thump with knuckles produces a hollow sound.

At Ferry Morse, we are proud of our non-GMO & guaranteed fresh seeds.
