Botanical Name: Cucumis melo
The best large-fruited watermelon for your garden; it will supply you with large oblong fruit in excess of 12kg. The flesh is deep red encased in a light green skin. Very refreshing on a summers day. Watermelons require a hot sunny position and plenty of moisture.
We hope you enjoy these vegetable seeds, just another great example of vegetable seeds from Mr Fothergill’s!
How To Grow
Sow 12mm (half-inch) deep, direct in final position. Sow 4 or 5 seeds in clumps, later thinning to the strongest two seedlings. Allow 100cm (3ft) between rows and 40-50cm (16-20in) between clumps. When the young plants have 5 or 6 leaves pinch out their growing tips to encourage the growth of side shoots. Keep the plants well watered, and prepare the soil with organic material and a complete fertiliser.
When To Plant
Spring and Summer.
