This variety of watermelon is perfect for a small garden space, it produces an early yielding fruit on a compact vine. Melons are up to 30cm in diameter and are ready to harvest once the fruit pulls easily away from the vine. Requires free-draining, moderately fertile soil, add compost as part of the preparation. Position on the edge of your growing space or set up a trellis structure to grow vertically. Requires full sun and room to move. 

How to plant: Sow directly into the patch into small mounds of compost that will ensure nutrition and drainage. Keep well watered up to germination.
