  • The Crimson Sweet Watermelon has a round to oval shape with a dark green rind and lighter green stripes. The flesh is a vibrant red color and is very sweet and juicy with a refreshing flavor. It is also high in vitamins A and C and contains some potassium and dietary fiber.


    Crimson Sweet Watermelons are typically quite large, ranging in size from 15 to 25 pounds, although they can sometimes grow even larger.


    Days to maturity: 85

    Seeds per pack: 15

    • Choose a suitable location: Crimson Sweet Watermelons require a warm and sunny location to grow. They prefer well-draining soil with a pH range of 6.0 to 6.8. Choose a location that receives at least six hours of direct sunlight per day.

    • Prepare the soil: Prepare the soil by removing any weeds and adding compost or well-rotted manure to improve the soil quality. You can also add a balanced fertilizer to provide additional nutrients.

    • Plant the seeds: Plant the seeds directly into the soil after the danger of frost has passed. Plant the seeds 1 inch deep and 2-3 feet apart, with rows spaced 4-6 feet apart. Water the seeds thoroughly after planting.

    • Provide support: Crimson Sweet Watermelon vines can grow up to 10 feet long, so provide support for the vines by using a trellis or fence. This will also help keep the fruit off the ground, reducing the risk of rot.

    • Water regularly: Water the plants regularly, providing 1-2 inches of water per week. Avoid getting the leaves wet to reduce the risk of disease.

    • Fertilize: Apply a balanced fertilizer every 3-4 weeks to provide additional nutrients to the plants.

    • Control pests and diseases: Monitor the plants for pests and diseases, and take appropriate measures to control them if necessary. Common pests that can affect watermelon plants include cucumber beetles and aphids.

    • Harvest: Crimson Sweet Watermelons are ready to harvest when the skin turns from dark green to a lighter green color, and the fruit gives slightly when pressed at the stem end. Cut the fruit from the vine using a sharp knife, leaving a small portion of the stem attached. Crimson Sweet Watermelons will not continue to ripen after they are picked, so it's best to harvest them when they are fully ripe to ensure the best flavor and texture.
