Watermelon crop for the winter

Postby ramverma » Mon Sep 14, 2015 12:54 pm

I am planning for watermelon either NS 295 or sugar queen, planting on 15th December.
Since that would be peak winter, I want to know what issues I could face. I have already failed 3 times with watermelon, but kya karen, dil maange more.

I want to succeed, and I have time till next rains ( April) before I go back to growing maize.
I checked out NS 295 as better market demand these days compared to icebox variety.

1. What issues when growing watermelon in winter?
2. Yield of NS 295 or sugar queen.

I have few more doubts but lets start here and see what comes out.
