Growing Watermelon

View the Watermelon page

10 Mar 08 Matt Rieck (Unknown climate)
I planted some watermelon seeds about 6 months age and they are still not ripe. Green inside. They are still attached to the vine and the attachment is still green. The bottom is a pale slightly yellow. The crop has yielded around 100 melons and a mediun sized one weights 14 kgs. I have no option but to leave them growing till the vine falls off. Is this a good solution Regards Matt
