How to Harvest
Watermelons are plants which is grown in climates from tropical to temperate, needing temperatures over than about 25 °C (77 °F) to thrive. On a garden scale, seeds are mostly sown in pots under cover and transplanted into well-drained sandy loam with a pH between 5.5 and 7, and medium levels of nitrogen. Growing watermelons requires plenty of space, plenty of sun, plenty of water and also plenty of nutrients. They are greedy, rambling vines, like all plants within the Cucurbita family.
Watermelons are grown from seed. Planted the watermelon seeds in the ground, right where they’re supposed to grow. The soil should be a minimum of 18°C/65F for them to germinate. Watermelon seed germinates easily and quickly, within some days. Watermelon plants outgrow the seedling stage very quickly and they don’t like transplanting. Don’t save much time and might end up with a weaker plant. Watermelons need deep, rich, friable soils. To grow watermelons, it helps to boost the soil (make mounds or ridges). Raising the soil has several advantages.
Watermelons grow male and female flowers on the identical vine. The smaller male flowers blossom first. In other hand, the female flowers are larger and you’ll be able to already see the tiny melon setting out to form at the base of the flower. A healthy watermelon in a balanced environment and in good soil should not attract too many beetles. Also, a watermelon should grow fast enough to deal with a few beetles.
