Watermelon Plants

Watermelons are high in Vitamins A, B6 and C, citrulline, as well as fiber and potassium. They are also low in calories and high in nutrition and contain more lycopene per serving than tomatoes.


When your watermelons are ripe, they will have the following characteristics—which takes the guess work out of harvesting.

  • The light green, curly tendrils on the stem near the point of attachment of the melon usually turn brown and dry
  • The surface color of the fruit turns dull
  • The skin becomes resistant to penetration by the thumbnail and is rough to the touch
  • The bottom of the melon (where it sits on the soil) turns from light green to a yellowish color.

If you purchase a seedless variety; be aware they cannot pollinate themselves, you must inter-plant with a seeded melon. We recommend one seeded watermelon plant for every three seedless plants.


The main pest of watermelons is the Cucumber Beetle, to control simply apply organic Diatomaceous Earth.


We grow our watermelon plants in larger pots, ensuring a more vigorous root system. We guarantee our vegetable starter plants to arrive alive, ready to thrive. All of our watermelon plants for sale ship according to our spring shipping schedule.
