£6.99 each

  • Good in pots and containers
  • Will flower well in full sun
  • UK-friendly variety
  • Disease-resistant
  • Delicious thirst-quenching fruit 

Grow low fat watermelons full of flavour, sweetness and vitamins from plants that thrive on a UK veg plot to enjoy the unique taste of thirst-quenching fruit. Mini Love is a smaller watermelon variety that stands up well to UK conditions and every plant offers up to six melons in an average year. Every fruit reveals lovely red flesh with few, in any, seeds and an attractive split-resistant green stripe rind.

Just position your plants in full sun and treat to an extra-rich soil like John Innes No.3 nutritional growing medium. This means your mini watermelons will have a soil and air environment that they’ll truly thrive in.

Compact yet with F1 hybrid vigour Mini Love only demands a small space on your plot. We recommend you grow a plant in the centre of a square metre (3sq ft) area to grow out. Resistant to a range of diseases including powdery mildew and athracnose you can rely on plants to give you healthy, unblemished fruit around 15cm (6in) in diameter. If growing in pots, choose a pot with 30-40cm (12-16in) diameter for best results.

We recommend you put a layer of thick black plastic over the ground at planting and position the plants in holes cut into the plastic. This will offer them that extra bit of heat and sunlight reflecting from the surface so they ripen quicker.
