Instructions Chevron Down Chevron Forward

Start Crimson Sweet 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 Crimson Sweet Watermelon seeds roughly 6' apart in rows, keeping rows approximately 5' 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.
