Watermelon - Blacktail Mountain Seeds

  • Start watermelon seeds indoors no earlier than 3-4 weeks prior to your last frost date. Watermelon plants do not like to become root bound so make sure not to start plants too early. Can also direct-seed after risk of frost has passed in areas with longer growing season.

    Sow seeds ~1 inch (2.5 cm) deep and cover. Keep moist until germination in ~5-10 days.

    Transplant after risk of frost has passed in a sunny location with plants spaced 3-4 feet (90-120 cm) apart with 4-6 feet (120-180 cm) between rows.

  • Citrullus lanatus
