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.
