  • Grow watermelons in the UK
  • Disease-resistant
  • Non-splitting fruit

Grow vitamin-rich, low-fat watermelons from plants that thrive in an average UK allotment or back garden to enjoy the unique taste of sun-ripe thirst-quenching fruit with melt-in-the-mouth flesh. Mini Love is a dwarf watermelon variety that stands up well to UK conditions and every plant produces up to six melons in an average year. Every 3-5kg (6 ½- 11lbs) fruit boasts lovely red flesh with few, in any, seeds and an attractive split-resistant green stripe rind.

Compact yet with F1 hybrid vigour Mini Love take a relatively small space on your plot. We recommend you grow a plant in the centre of a square metre (3 sq ft) area to grow out. Disease resistant to a range of diseases including powdery mildew and athracnose get peace of mind your plants will give you healthy unblemished fruit around 15cm (6in) in diameter. If growing in pots, choose a pot with 30-40cm (12-16in) diameter.

Position your plants in full sun and treat to an extra rich soil like John Innes No.3 nutritional growing medium. Alternatively add lots of well-rotted farmyard manure to the soil to up the nutrients to the maximum which your mini watermelons will thrive in.

We recommend you add a layer of plastic at planting beneath the developing fruits will give them that extra bit of heat and sunlight reflecting from the surface for quicker ripening.
