Watermelon, Carolina Cross #183 Heirloom

Gigantic, delicious watermelons, many over 200 lb.

These enormous watermelons are oblong with light green stripes and are ready to harvest just 100 days after sowing. GARDEN HINTS: For early fruiting and to overcome a short growing season, start seeds in a warm, well-lighted indoor area 3 to 4 weeks before last spring frost. Before transfer to garden, accustom plants to outdoor conditions by moving to a sheltered area outside for a week. Grow on plastic mulch to control weeds, conserve soil moisture and protect fruit by keeping it off the ground.
