Watermelon seed detail.png

Watermelon seeds are used to grow watermelons through the Farming skill at level 47. Players must plant 3 watermelon seeds per allotment. They may be obtained by pickpocketing Master Farmers, the Temple Trekking minigame, from the Wintertodt supply crate, and a possible reward from the high level gamble reward from the Barbarian Assault minigame. It can also be obtained from killing various monsters.

A nearby gardener will watch over your growing watermelons (excluding Harmony Island) at the cost of 10 curry leaves - either noted or unnoted. Having fully grown nasturtiums in a nearby flower patch protects watermelons from disease and thus allow players to avoid having to pay the gardener.

Watermelons are necessary to grow on Harmony Island for the Morytania Diary. There are no gardeners on the island to watch over your crops.
