Humans have cultivated watermelon plants for thousands of years. We’ll explain the watermelon growth stages in detail. Then, offer some growing tips.
The growing cycle of watermelon begins with a tiny black and brown seed. This flat, teardrop-shaped seed is no bigger than half an inch long.
The plant’s growing season is arguably the most important consideration for first-time growers.
Seed germination begins once you’ve planted the seed in the soil. It then takes 3-14 days for the seed to complete germination.
In about 5-10 days, four or five leaves will replace the tiny embryonic leaves. This growth is known as the first set of true leaves.
Approximately one month after you’ve planted the watermelon, you’ll see new vines develop from the main vine.
Watermelon plants produce both male and female flowers. Each solitary yellow flower measures about 1-3 inches wide with 4-5 petals.
