Hi Themir,

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.

All the very best
Ben
