How many watermelons per acre?
Thousands of people around the world ask this question all the time.
And this post is going to give the answer.
When I first began growing watermelon I faced the same problem.
I did not know how much watermelons to expect in an acre.
So I did some online research to find the right answer,
Unfortunately, there was too much conflicting information about the number of melons per acre.
Some info put the figure at 20,000 fruits per acre, others 10,000 and others 7,500 fruits.
“So… which is the right answer?” I wondered.
It is then that I realized to find it, “I’ll have to grow my own watermelon to find it.”
The good news is, I did just that…
…and today, I am sharing with you the results of my experiments, and the philosophy behind it.
Without wasting time—I will go straight to the point and answer the question.
“In one acre, you should have 2,500 watermelon plants.
When each plant produces 3 watermelons, you should have 7,500 watermelons per acre.
And for those guys who love calculating area in hectares, 1 hectare should have 18,375 watermelons.”
