2013 All-America Selections Winner!

90 days. Citrullus lanatus. (F1) Harvest Moon Watermelon. The plant produces high yields of 18 to 20 lb elongated round watermelons with dark green rind with freckles and splotches of bright yellow, similar to the Moon and Stars Watermelons. It has many advantages - it is seedless, ripens earlier, has higher yields, shorter vines, and tastes better! It has crisp pinkish red flesh. It is the first ever hybrid triploid seedless watermelon to ever win the All America Selection Award.This is perfect for picnics. To produce seedless watermelons, a pollinator is required. We suggest growing Sugar Baby watermelons alongside Harvest Moon as a pollinator. Always a great seller at Farmer’s Markets. An excellent choice for home gardens, market growers, and commercial production.

Seedless Watermelons Require Special Attention. The seeds must be started indoors and the Miracle-Gro Seed Starting Mix must be kept at a constant 85 F. Start the seeds at the same time you plant the Sugar Baby pollinator.

Watermelon Seed Planting Information:

Watermelons require a lot of space and a sunny location on your garden. Plant 5 to 7 seeds in a diameter outdoors in hills. Planting should occur 1 to 2 weeks after last frost. Plants grow 1 ft tall and vines spread up to 6 ft.

Soil Requirements:

Requires fertile soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant. Add well-rotted manure and compost to soil.

Water Requirements:

Water well during dry and hot spells. Make sure plants get 1" water per week.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Apply Miracle Gro every two weeks.

Harvest Tips:

Protect ripening watermelons from damp ground by placing them on boards. Tap the watermelon with your knuckles, and if it sounds hollow, it's ready. Cut watermelons carefully from plants to prevent damaging the vines.
