“Follow Our Traditional Cultivation & Have Healthy Lifestyle”

Watermelon, which comes in seeded and seedless variants, is a colorful, delicious summer classic. Watermelon demands patience, sunshine, and regular upkeep in the home garden.

How to Grow Watermelon:

  • Watermelons require a lot of room—up to 20 square feet per plant is required. Plant them in an area where they won’t crowd out other crops so that their vines can sprawl.
  • Loamy, sandy, well-drained soil is ideal for watermelons. They may suffer if the soil is too clayey and does not drain effectively.
  • Sow seeds 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep in seed-starting pots or 1/2 to 1 inch deep outdoors.

Climate Requirements:

Watermelon is a warm-season crop that has a long growing season. Watermelon requires three months of warm weather to thrive, so growers in cooler climates may need to start the seeds indoors before transplanting them to an outdoor garden once the soil temperature reaches 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

Fertilizer Requirement:

If you fertilize, make sure it contains more nitrogen than phosphate and potassium, as this will promote leaf and vine growth. However, after flowering begins, switch to a nitrogen-free fertilizer to increase blooms and fruit.

Pest Management:

Aphids, pickle worms, cucumber beetles, and spider mites are examples of common garden peats. Aphids and beetles can be gotten rid of using soap solutions. To keep weeds at bay, use paper or other roll-out mulch.

Water Requirement:

One to two inches of water each week is required for watermelon. Overwatering can cause mildew and promote the spread of fungal infections, thus drip irrigation is a better option. Maintain wet but not damp soil. Stop watering the crop two weeks before harvest to allow the sugars in the fruit to concentrate, resulting in a sweeter melon.

Sunlight:

Watermelon grows best in direct sunlight. Choose a spot with eight to ten hours of direct sunlight for your Watermelon. The sun is required for the plant’s health and productivity.

Temperature:

Watermelon seed germination requires a soil temperature of 95°F.
