The Q&A Archives: Watermelons

Question: Every year i try to grow them but they split open and rot, what is the best way to make sure they make it!

Answer: Melons often split if there are large fluctuations in soil moisture content, either through irrigation or rainfall. Try to keep the soil evenly moist and be sure to mulch over the soil surface to help slow evaporation. Best wishes with your melons!
