FantasticBy: customer review from 24/01/2014 on 22 March 2016These were so easy to germinate - every seed sprouted! I'm so pleased with these seeds! They seem to be so easy to grow.
Great GerminationBy: customer review from 27/01/2016 on 20 March 2016I have tried to grow watermelon from seeds for years with no luck. This is the first time I have ever had seeds germinate. I have several healthy plants from these seeds with a couple of fruit forming. I'm soooo excited!
