This season, set the bar high by growing the gigantic Garden Leader Monster Watermelon!

These watermelon seeds promise a bountiful harvest of immense, juicy melons, each bursting with natural sweetness.

For the best results, plant seeds in full sun when the soil is warm, keep them moist, and fertilize regularly. The area needs to be free of obstacles for the best root development. Plants form long vines that produce two fruits averaging 20-30 pounds each.

This monster watermelon variety produces oblong striped fruit with sweet red flesh for unsurpassed eating. Packed with nutrients and hydration, they are a must-have for summer gatherings, picnics, and barbecues. Their versatility shines, whether enjoyed fresh, in fruit salads, or blended into refreshing beverages.
