Plant 2-3 Crison sweet seeds 1\" deep per individual cell or 6-8 ft apart directly in the garden in loamy, regularly moist, well-drained soil with a pH of 6.0-6.8.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eWatermelon performs best when grown on 8-10\" tall mounds of soil to ideally accommodate long, heavy trailing vines. Plants are heavy feeders, benefiting from a nitrogen-rich fertilizer every 2-3 weeks until fruiting, then reduce nitrogen in the fertilizer. Watermelon fruits are about 90 percent water and plants require heavy routine summertime watering to produce 20-30 lb melons. Smaller dwarfed types may be trellised for tighter grow spaces.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eOrganic Crimson Sweet Watermelon seeds grow into vine-spreading tender annuals that crave the heat. Crimson Watermelon is a refreshing treat that’s easy for any gardener to grow.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eOrganic Crimson Sweet Watermelon in the Vegetable Garden\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eWatermelon seeds are the unofficial herald of summer and, without doubt, the largest and juiciest fruit you could possibly hope for in the garden. Most popularly known as a red-flesh fruit, watermelon is also available in both yellow and orange along with a surprising selection of shape and size. Most varieties boast 20-30 lb fruits with regular watering and, like pumpkins and gourds, may be pruned and pinched back to direct growth towards competition size melons.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThese fresh watermelon seeds are warm annuals that have a shorter growing season and produce vines that can spread 10’ long. Crimson Sweet Watermelons that are organic make an exceptional seed variety that take on bright ruby-red flesh and an oblong-shaped exterior.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eHarvesting Organic Crimson Sweet Watermelon\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eMost watermelons are ready to harvest about 90 days from sowing or when showing signs of ripeness. The most important tip to picking vine-ripened watermelon is to locate the small tendril attached to the melon on the vine. If this tendril is completely brown and dead, the melon is ripe for harvest but, if the tendril is still even slightly green, the watermelon is not ready.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eHeirloom watermelon rinds will soften slightly when ripe and feel less like an impenetrable gourd. Use scissors or shears to carefully remove watermelon from the vine.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eWhen it comes to harvesting watermelons of all types, there are some tips and tricks for scoping out ripeness. Visual cues such as checking the color on the bottom will show an off-white color if they’re still unripe. Organic Crimson Sweet watermelons will be ripe once you see more of a yellow hue. Textural signs are the classic “thump” method as well as the gentle press. For “thumping” give a light knock on the rind to hear a hollow sound which indicates full maturity.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eHarvest the ripe fruit in 80 days from the sowing date. Cut the stem near the fruit with a knife or gardening shears. Uncut Crimson Sweet Watermelon can be stored in room temperature for up to 3 weeks.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eAbout Organic Crimson Sweet Watermelon Seeds\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cem\u003eCitrullus lanatus\u003c\/em\u003e.
