(Citrullus vulgaris) We’re #1 in watermelon varieties– check our selection! We carry watermelon seed for wide range of sizes and colors. Plant heirloom watermelon seeds in late spring; the plants thrive in summer heat. A longstanding crop in the South where it was originally transported by slaves from Africa.





Sow the seed one-half inch deep outdoors after frost-season is over and soil is warm. Soil should be rich and well-amended with compost or manure. Sow the seed 12 inches  apart, in rows 6 feet apart. They may be started indoors from seed no more than 2-3 weeks prior to setting-out date, and never let watermelon seedlings become root-bound in their pots.
