The Q&A Archives: Seed Life Of Watermelons

Question: Our watermelons are't coming up as yet. I have had these seeds for a couple of years. I was wondering how long the seeds are good for.

Answer: Theoretically watermelon seed could be stored under ideal conditions for up to about four years, less under average home storage conditions. Germination rates will also decrease from year to year, so it is probably time to obtain some fresh seed.
