Sometimes, it is necessary to thin them out, both vine and fruit! When pruning watermelon plants, it is important to use clean and sharp pruning shears or scissors to minimize damage to the plant. Start by removing any dead, diseased, or damaged leaves or vines. Make clean cuts close to the main stem or branch, without leaving any stubs. Avoid excessive pruning, as it can stress the plant and reduce fruit production.
