Ultra Cool produces 14-16 pound, dark green, striped watermelons. They're sweet, crisp and best of all...seedless! All seedless melons require special pollinators like the ones that grow from seeds included in this packet. Just be sure to plant at least 5 groups (called hills) to ensure good pollination.
After the last frost when the soil has thoroughly warmed, plant seeds 3-4 per group or hill in well-drained enriched soil, compost or rotted manure. Seedlings can be started indoors in 3-inch peat pots, 4 weeks before transplanting. Use plastic mulch in cool climates to retain heat in the soil.
Fertilize monthly beside each plant. Water regularly. To harvest, pick when the curly tendril next to the melon's stem turns brown and the underside of the melon turns yellow. Melons with gray rinds are produced by the pollinator plants-they're good tasting but may have seeds.
