|I ordered a pack of burpee seedless watermelon (sugar baby). On planting I was told that a pollinator seed was included with in the pack. No problem until I start to thin the plants after germination. Will I be able to determine a difference in the plants once they are bigger. If not, should I not thin the seedlings. Thank You

|What an excellent question! It's likely you'll be able to tell the pollinator from the other plants by the slight difference in leaf color or markings, but if it isn't absolutely apparent to you, err on the safe side and don't thin them at all. Hope you enjoy your watermelons!
