Nature's energy drink, with a full

 range of electrolytes--watermelon always makes you

feel better on a hot day! Best to grow an early and a late variety, because 

those hot days drag on into fall, and you will still want melons! 

Sow in warm (70F) soil or start indoors 1 month before last frost and plant out in warm weather. Needs full sun, and moist soil until fruit sets, then less water.
 
Pick when tendril nearest fruit dies or spot where the fruit rests on the ground is yellow.In some parts of the world, seeds are toasted and eaten. 

Takes up much less space than squash or other melons, and is one of the supreme pleasures of summer!
