Have eaten this fruit for many years. Easy to grow, care for and one sees the flowers quickly and then the watermelon grows out and the picking starts. Rose Rivera

how to tell when watermelon is ripe ?
william m on Aug 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: There should be a slight give at the stem attachment and if you knock on it with your knuckles, it will sound hollow. The stem should still be mostly green. If it's brown, the melon will be overripe.
How many seeds are you actually shipp, just one or more per package?
Sal on Jan 12, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. These seeds are sold by the pack. This variety contains approx. 25-35 seeds per package.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!
