Growth Habit & Planting Instructions:
As an indeterminate variety, Dixie Queen Watermelon vines will continue to grow and produce fruit throughout the growing season. To cultivate optimal growth, plant seeds in full sun and in fertile, well-drained soil. Start seeds indoors approximately 2-3 weeks before the last expected frost date in your area, then transplant seedlings outdoors once all danger of frost has passed. Provide ample space between plants, approximately 6-8 feet apart, to allow for vine spread. Mulching around the plants can help retain moisture and suppress weed growth. Regular watering, particularly during dry spells, is essential for healthy fruit development.
