Watermelon Seeds

In late spring to early summer, when soil has warmed above 70°F, sow 6 seeds about 2 inches apart in hills about 8 feet apart. Thin to 2 or 3 of the strongest seedlings. In short season areas, start seed indoors in plantable peat pots or Jiffy-7® Extra Deep Peat Pellets. Days to maturity given are from transplant.
