HOW TO GROW WATERMELON

Start indoors 3–4 weeks before last frost, plant out 2 weeks after last frost. Direct seed every 18” when soil is 70˚F. Store at 45˚F. Optimal temperature for plant growth is between 80-95˚F with nighttime temperatures above 70˚F. Water transplants more early on, sparingly as plants mature. Mulch to prevent weed competition. One beehive is suggested per acre for seedless varieties. The most commonly used signs of fruit maturity is to check if the tendril bearing the fruit has dried and withered or if the ground spot has turned a warm yellowish cream color. A number of seed growers give watermelon seed a 1 to 2 day fermentation period which helps free the seed from all endocarp material. Soil pH 6.5-7.5. Hardiness zones 4-9. Annual.

Days from maturity calculated from the date of seeding. Average 625–875 seeds per ounce. Average 15M seeds per acre. Federal germination standard: 70%. Usual seed life: 6 years. Isolation distance for seed saving: 1/2 mile.

One of the best orange fleshed watermelons. Brilliant deep orange flesh is sugary, crisp and almost tropical tasting. Fruits weight 15-20 plus lbs. Mother Earth News says, “What makes ‘Orangeglo’ watermelon special is its taste and texture, and from a health standpoint, its high concentration of beta carotene and vitamin C. The skin of the watermelon also is unusual, a pale lime green with dark green mottling arranged somewhat like stripes. We don’t often see this watermelon in supermarkets because packers don’t consider it a good shipper. The skin is thinner than that of many commercial varieties, and the melons tend to crack easily if struck.” Seeds are white at maturity.
