Watermelon in the middle of fall in the middle south?

Post  Windmere on 9/21/2013, 11:07 am

Hey everyone.  I have some sugar baby vines that have come back to life due my tender loving care after a long absence.  Unbelievably, my vines are blossoming their trademark yellow flowers.

A dumb question perhaps:  Should I let the vines go or should I uproot them for fall/winter crops?

Have seen my father grow them here in Alabama into the early fall, but not sure if they will mature for you because of slower growing time with less sunlight and cooler temps? I think it's always fun to try once, just to see what happens?Smile

Thanks for the response Sparrow.  Yes, I think I will let those vines do their thing.  If anything, I'll have an interesting story to tell.  Who knows?  I might be happily surprised!

If you have space, why not? Keep in mind, though, that the fruit needs heat to ripen, so you might be thinking of how you can increase the heat. I have some frames with plastic hoops that fit over my beds for just such a purpose. Then I can cover them with plastic (held on by spring clamps) to intensify the sun's heat. Gotta be careful, though or you can fry them.
