“I love things that are indescribable,
like the taste of an avocado or the smell of a gardenia”
~ Barbra Streisand ~
What comes to mind when you hear the word Watermelon?
Sweet, Juicy, Delicious on hot summer days!
With a history spanning all the way from ancient Egypt this vine growing, sunshine loving fruit is well known for its bright pinkish red flesh and sweet taste.There are many varieties of watermelon with different coloured flesh – pink, white & in between.
All types are easy to grow if planted in rich, composted soil with some added Super Growth pellets when planting of course.
Always keep up a regular watering regime and mulch around the base of the plant to help keep the roots cool.
A perfect treat for all the family, watermelons provide a complete array of nutrients and with a low calorie count, this fruit is great as a guilt free snack! Yum!
Mulch around the base of each plant to maintain moisture levels in the heat of summer and prevent weeds taking over! We also recommend giving the vine some Katek Neptune Seaweed Concentrate for the first few weeks after planting to help get the roots established and get the vine growing healthy & strong!
“Did you Know? Pineapples are actually berries and are the only edible part of any bromeliad plant.”
