This article is about the crop. For the item, see Watermelon.

Watermelons are grown with the Farming skill. Level 47 farmers may plant 3 watermelon seeds in a allotment patch that has been treated with compost. Compost or Super Compost may be added prior to planting, and once planted (using a seed dibber), the nearby farmer may be paid to watch over your allotment. Payment is 10 curry leaves and optionally may be noted to save you space.

Planting the watermelon seeds gives 48.5 farming experience. If the farmer does not watch the allotment, then disease in the allotment may be removed using Plant cure, or using the Cure plant spell in the Lunar spellbook with level 66 Magic and completion of Lunar Diplomacy (albeit more expensive, this can save inventory space when doing farm runs). However, if left alone, the diseased allotment will die.

Each watermelon, when picked, gives 54.5 farming experience. Once all watermelons have been picked, the allotment will be clear for new crops.
