Grow Mouthwater­ing Watermelon­s!


watermelon­s love hot weather and require a long season to mature. If you live in a northern climate, select a variety with a shorter number of days to maturity. while southern growers will have no trouble growing a melon that takes 100-plus days to set fruit, northern gardeners would do better to choose one that matures in 75 to 80 days instead. Also, look for varieties with noted disease resistance. watermelon­s are prone to powdery mildew, anthracnos­e, Alternaria blight and a few other diseases; if these diseases have been problemati­c in your garden in the past, choose only resistant varieties.
