After two weeks, vines will emerge from the plant’s stem. Watermelons have long vines, reaching 10 feet (3 meters) long, depending on the variety.
Beneficial insects such as bees, butterflies, and other pollinators play a key role in transferring pollen from male to female flowers, which is necessary for fruit formation.
After successful pollination, the watermelons develop, and the fruits grow larger. The time depends on the watermelon variety but usually takes 70 to 90 days.
