Benny---nice job!!! was it sweet? i have watermelons and cantelopes growing in my garden now. i am growing the malawi variety of watermelon---it gets big but it isn't as sweet as i would like. i planted 4 other varieties but they were crowded out and seem to disappeared. i'd welcome any advice you have.
I thank you kindly. I apologize for the belated reply. This watermelon was SO sweet and unbelievably juicy. The advice I will share is what I did to grow mine. I placed them in a bed with a ton of cow manure and another organic fertilize comprised of chicken manure among other things. I have read that the smaller melons tend to produce the best fruite and consequently perform better. There is a relatively short number of days to yeild so I believe I will always stick with them from here on out. Besides, this one small melon lasted us days!
If you want some seeds, Please do D-mail me and I will send some your way.
