Watermelons are a refreshing summertime treat and a favorite fruit for snacking and cutting up for fruit salads. Both seeded and seedless watermelons can be grown in home gardens. If planting a seedless variety, a seeded watermelon variety should be planted for proper pollination. When selecting watermelon varieties, note the size of mature fruits. Some watermelons may be "personal" sized, or 5 lbs., and some may weigh 40 lbs. or more. Watermelon vines grow best in full sun and in well-drained soil. Some other considerations when selecting watermelon varieties for the home garden are the fruit flavor, seeded or seedless, yields, disease resistance of the plants, and days until maturity.
