Citrullus lanatus var. lanatus

Watermelons seeds are started indoors 3-4 weeks before the last expected frost or planted directly in the garden after all danger of frost has past. Where growing climates are marginal, black plastic mulch and floating row covers will be extremely helpful. Plant Watermelons in the hottest part of the garden and give them plenty of room to grow.
