Next year I WILL try to graft watermelon onto a rootstock. I'm handy with
grafting and it might overcome some of the early season slowness watermelon
vines show here in Massachusetts. Of course I'll still have to have
because I'll have to watermelon vine to graft onto the rootstock.

One well-tried watermelon rootstock is the japanese-made hybrid squash

"In 1956, Tetsukabuto, a commercial F1 hybrid of Cucurbita maxima x C.
moschata. from Takii & Co., Ltd., Seed Growers, Hyota, Japan, yielded many
oblate dark green squashes at Durham, N.H. that, when cooked, were rated very
good. "
