Watermelon Crimson Sweet Seeds
Info: Crimson Sweet is a traditional and globally popular watermelon variety. It originated in the USA in the early 1960s and is able to cope with different cultivation conditions. The elongated oval fruits with their light and dark green striped shell become about 10kg heavy. It is a very productive, early variety with purple, juicy, sweet pulp. Suitable as a dessert, for fruit salads or as a bowl. With a water content of 90%, it is an excellent low-calorie thirst-extinguisher for hot summers.
Sowing & cultivation: Melon seeds should be sown in good sowing earth with adequate heat from April. The sowing depth should be 1-2cm. After about 3-4 weeks, the plantlets can be placed outdoors in frost-free weather. At a plant distance of 2m should be considered. The location should be warm and wind-protected. A mulch foil additionally heats the soil after planting. The soil must be humus-rich and loose. Harvest from September when the fruit knocking sound is dull and easy to release from the stem. The main shoot of the watermelon plant must be freed from the lateral shoots after the fifth to sixth leaf.
