Watermelon plants grow sprawling vines that produce edible, juicy fruits that are eaten fresh from the garden. To grow the healthiest melons, use with a high phosphorus fertilizer when transplanting, then 30 days later give the plants an application of nitrogen. Plants need at least 1 inch of water per week. Fruits are ready to be harvested when the curly tendrils turn brown and dry and when the surface of the melon becomes dull. All of our Watermelon Plants for sale are grown organically and shipped with very well-established root systems. We guarantee them to arrive alive and thriving.
