Watermelons are warm season fruits that grow on sprawling vines. Due to their vining habit, these plants need lots of room and are not very well suited to small garden spaces.
Watermelons are long crops that require 80-100 days from seed to produce melons. They can be grown from either seed or transplants. Transplants will produce fruit 2 weeks earlier than compared to seed grown vines.
