Organic Watermelon Seeds

The determination of mountain living brings you this short-season beauty. The Blacktail Mountain Watermelon was developed in northern Idaho, where nights can drop into the 40s. These plants prevail mightily, producing 6- to 12-pound fruits with sweet, crunchy flesh. Good for warmer climates, too; 70-75 days to maturity. CERTIFIED ORGANIC. Here are our best tips for Growing Watermelon, too!

Each packet contains approximately 25 seeds.

Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Choose a planting site with full sun, well-drained soil and good air circulation. A gentle, south-facing slope is ideal. Sow 1/2 inch deep after the last frost and temperatures are warm. Space plants 12-inches apart, in rows 6-feet apart. Small bush varieties may be spaced 3-feet apart. Keep soil moist at all times.

Fruits are ready to harvest when stems turn from green to brown and begin to dry. In addition, look for the underside — where the fruit rests on the ground — to turn from a greenish white to yellow or cream colored. Cut from vines with at least one inch of stem attached.
