Jubilee Watermelon is a variety of watermelon known for its sweet taste, red flesh, and oblong shape. This variety typically weighs around 25-35 pounds and it's a popular choice for home gardens and farmer markets.
To grow Jubilee Watermelon, you will need:
Well-drained, fertile soil
Seeds or seedlings
Start seeds indoors about 4-6 weeks before the last frost date, or sow seed directly into the ground after the last frost date.
Transplant seedlings to the garden or direct-sow seed into the garden after all danger of frost have passed and the soil has warmed up. Space the plants about 4-6 feet apart.
Water the watermelon regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.
Fertilize the watermelon plants with a balanced fertilizer every 4-6 weeks.
Provide support for the watermelon plants, such as a trellis or a cage, as they grow.
Harvest the watermelon when it reaches maturity and the tendril closest to the fruit has dried.
