  • Encourage growth of up frames to reduce damage to fruit.

  • Watermelons require ample water and sticky terrain in early growth stages.

  • Hand pollination is necessary for pollination, especially if insects are absent.

  • Manly flowers pollinate in small groups, while females are solitary.

  • Feed daily with a liquid fertilizer like Tui Seaweed & Fish when the fruit is fist-sized.

  • Watering fruit before harvesting can cause fleeting growth.

  •  Remove young fruits in late summer to focus on remaining fruit growth.
