Crimson Sweet Watermelons are a long-standing favorite summertime treat that are well known for their juicy, mouth-watering taste with its deliciously red fruit encased by a stunning green shell. Crimson Sweet melons average 25 pounds.

Days To Maturity: 85

How to grow: Plant in full sun.

Plant after danger of frost has passed.  Side-dress with nitrogen when vines begin to run.  Watermelons mature in 80-100 days from seed.  Young transplants are typically 14-21 days old.

Spacing: Plant 48″ apart in 8′ rows.

Height: Grows 6″ to 8″ tall.

Outstanding features: Tastes great!

Tips: Plant two plants every 48″ to ensure a successful crop.  Placing a straw matt under the watermelon will prevent the bottom of the watermelon from rotting as it continues to grow.  Fertilize well by side-dressing the rows with nitrogen when vines begin to run and keep the soil moist at all times.
