Surprise Success
Tony from MA wrote on January 22, 2019

I live in western MA and decided to add watermelons to my garden last season. I chose these seeds. My initial plan was to sow these in an area I created just for these melons. Unfortunately it rained heavy and often here. It was not good for melons and pumpkins but fearing disappointment I made a desperate call to move two melon plants to a raised bed with loose good draining soil. I was rewarded with two excellent watermelons. The others did not work out as I feared and the pumpkins ended up rotting early. I've learned several lessons moving forward. I believe these to be top notch seeds that once I replicate the conditions of the raised bed will flourish and provide much more than two melons.

Super Productive Miniature Fruits
B from NC wrote on September 25, 2018

These were surprisingly productive in pots on a small patio. I tried 2 small growing watermelon varieties and Mini Love was the star of the show. The fruit are pretty standard in terms of taste and smell. The fruits are small, personal sized watermelons and tend to reach sizes a bit smaller than a volley ball. The small vines appear to produce large quantities of fruit throughout the hottest parts of the year. One packet of seed was enough to leave me so many fruits that I was begging people to take them away. The only downside to watermelons in my situation was that they are heavy drinkers. In containers, I had to water 2 - 3 times a day in the height of the summer, otherwise these plants would wilt quickly. Overall, this seems to be a great container watermelon if you can keep up with the watering and you're sure you won't get tired of watermelon around mid-summer.

Great plant,,,a keeper!

I love this watermelon. It is sweet and small. I started all four of my plants indoors and all survived the transplant into the garden and only one didn't produce pollinated fruit (grown in a large pot). I had two plants that were trellised. I noticed when they are trellised they take longer to ripen and they will give only one watermelon per plant. The second plant I trellised, one watermelon vine was trellised and had a watermelon and the other vine I later let ramble and another watermelon grew and is ready to harvest before the watermelon that was already on the trellised vine. I recommend allowing the vines to ramble for more watermelons and better ripening time. I noticed squash bugs on the plants but no damage from them. There were probably aphids on the leaf due to the large ant population crawling on one of the plants, which might be due to its location. Great plant,,,a keeper!

Amazing little watermelons
Tom-M from VA wrote on September 20, 2017

Got 6 watermelons from two plants I raised. Watermelons formed at 5 to 6 ft from mound. First watermelon I picked, and they are of extremely good flavor and with few seeds. I would honestly say this is the best watermelon I have ever seen for a home garden. Just wish the seeds were not so expensive. Wish I could post pics.
