Growth Habit & Planting Instructions:

As an indeterminate variety, Congo Watermelons will continue to produce fruit throughout the growing season. To ensure optimal growth, plant them in full sun and well-drained soil with warm temperatures. Start seeds indoors about 2-3 weeks before the last expected frost date, then transplant seedlings outdoors once the soil has warmed and all danger of frost has passed. Space plants about 6-8 feet apart to allow for adequate vine spread. Provide support for the vines, such as trellises or stakes, to keep the heavy fruit off the ground and prevent rotting. Regular watering, especially during hot and dry periods, is essential for a successful harvest of delicious Congo Watermelons.
