----For seeded watermelon

We usually adopt double-vine cultivating for seeded watermelon, that is to say, retaining the principle vine and a stronger one of the lateral vines. The other lateral vines should be cut away. Let the second or the third female flower of the principle vine to set fruit. The pruning can be stopped when the set fruit is very well. Only one fruit sets on one plant.
To seeded watermelon varieties, usually, it is not need of artificial pollination. However, artificial pollination or honey bee-pollination can enhance the rate of fruit setting.

----For seedless watermelon

Because seedless types, generally speaking, grow vigorously, the triple-vine cultivation can be used, that is to say, retaining the principle vine and the two stronger ones of the lateral vines. The other lateral vines should be cut away. The pruning can be stopped when the set fruit is stable. One fruit bearing on one plant is all right.
Seedless type is a genetic triploid (self-sterile hybrids). Its pollens are sterile, so a standard seeded variety (diploid) should be planted alongside. And artificial pollination is necessary. Artificial pollination would be carried out at six to nine o'clock in the morning, because the pollen has strong physiological activities at that time .
