It's much more important with seedless watermelons. If you have fresh seed, other watermelons are easy to grow.


>> If you try growing transplants, another caution. Once you've seeded the trays
>> and watered them thoroughly, don't water again until the seedlings begin to
>> emerge. They really suffer when overwatered. Keep them warm, but not
>> excessively hot. They are very sensitive as germinating seeds. But once
>> they're up and growing, you can treat them like any other watermelon.
>Nice tip. Is this true only for seedless watermelon, or for other watermelons, and other melons?
