Q.Watermelon Plant Without Flowers

Zone Arizona | markaz added on July 21, 2011 | Answered

Store bought seedling planted approximately 4 weeks ago. Very little growth for 2 weeks until I deep watered. Now the plant has multiple 2′ – 2 1/2′ vines and very healthy looking. Fertilized with a 10-10-10 at the time of deep watering. All appears good except that the plant has yet to produce one flower. Is this common for a watermelon plant this size to not have flowers?

Thanks, Susan. I live in the Phoenix area where ground temps can remain in the 90's possibly through mid-October.

Yes, they are still growing. Hopefully, you have a long growing season so they will mature.
