Watermelon prefers a warm, sunny location with loose, rich soil. Start outdoors about two weeks after the last spring frost, when soil has completely warmed. Start indoors three weeks before last spring frost date. Do not disturb tender roots when transplanting. Keep plants evenly moist throughout the growing season for best production.

Harvest melons when the tendrils nearest the fruit turn brown, and the area touching the ground turns creamy yellow.
